    Question When to change fertilizer?

    I was wondering when do I start feeding a blooming fertilizer. For example, I have several spring bloomers, when do I start fertilizing with my blooming fertilizer.

    Default When to change fertilizer

    Thanks Diane, I guess I'll get started on my winter bloomers. I just got a four pack of differant fertilizers so I will try them out.

    Good luck Julie! I hope you get lots of beautiful blooms this winter so you can share them with all of us here on the forum!

    Thanks BD, I sure hope I do too. I don't have as much luck with orchids as I do with other house plants. LOL
