How to prepare petunia fertilizer

Petunias are not too fussy flowers that, with proper care, can bloom until late autumn. It is best to plant them in loamy or sandy loam fertile soil, pre-feeding with humus or compost.

Planting petunias in the bed, you should remember that flowers like open sunny areas with enough sunlight. And you can get a lush and long-lasting flowering with fertilizer alone. Read in the article OBOZREVATEL how to sprinkle flowers to flower all summer.

Universal fertilizer based on boric acid is very easy to prepare.

The necessary ingredients:

  • 500 ml of hot water;
  • 10 grams of borax.

Step 1. Pour 500 ml of hot water into a container and add 10 g of boron.

Step 2. The solution should be thoroughly mixed until the boron is completely dissolved. Wait a little while for the water to cool - and the fertilizer is ready.

Important caveat: The solution must be diluted with water before watering. In its pure form, it is too concentrated and can damage the plants. For every 100 ml of fertilizer, add 10 liters of warm water. After that, pour it into a sprayer and spray the petunias.

There is another effective fertilizer that will help prolong flowering time and cure diseases.

Signs of petunia disease are:

  • low number of buds;
  • flower buds falling off, their weakness;
  • sickly appearance of flowers, pale color, dark spots on the leaves.

The juice can be replaced with citric acid at a rate of 20 g per 1 liter of water.
