Growing crops that are abundant one year, but waning the next – does not a happy farmer make. Consistent crops that flourish year after year is what hobby farmers and large-scale producers alike are looking for.
As such, there are a few things to consider to ensure your growth is optimal each and every year.
Choosing Your Plants Wisely
If you are a hobby farmer and are looking to grow a garden to produce your own – well, produce, you will want to pick young plants that are bushy and have not flowered yet. This allows the plant to acclimate in your garden environment and growing conditions, with little to no shock in the replanting process.
Replanting plants that are already flowering – means they are also potentially seeding, and puts too much stress on a plant already accustom to its environment. So choose bushy but non-flowered plants that will adjust well, to ensure your garden grows as expected
Water. Feed. Repeat.
Just as humans will become dehydrated without water, or hungry without food …so too do plants become under such conditions.
Annuals, in particular, have short roots, so if the surface of the soil is dry, or if all the nutrients have been sucked from that soil, you are going to want to water and feed your plants sufficiently. Feeding your plants every 3-6 weeks with a water soluble fertilizer, will ensure they stay healthy and robust for the season in which they are intended to grow.
Groom for Better Growth
Getting rid of dead growth will allow your plants to flourish, and it will also prevent seed pods from forming. If your flowers have began to lay dormant during the time they should still be blooming, it is likely they need some maintenance and grooming.
As a way to safeguard against unhealthy plant growth, we offer a product called Bud Booster – providing optimal growth for your flowering plants. This bloom additive offers a high level of phosphorus, helping to promote blooming, and assists in the plant’s metabolism during the middle of the flowering stage. The potassium also helps improve the quality of your flowers/fruit and helps with the plant’s starch production.
WHAT IT IS
Bud Booster is a specialty flowering additive used in conjunction with your regular fertilizer program. It helps promote blooming and assists in the plant’s metabolism during the flowering stage.
HOW IT WORKS
Bud Booster is our original powdered bloom additive that delivers high amounts of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) to your plants. Phosphorus promotes flower formation and increases overall yields during the flowering stage. Added phosphorous will also aid with photosynthesis and the plant’s ability to uptake nutrients. Potassium helps improve the quality of your plant’s flowers and starch production.
Bud Booster also contains added boron (B) and nitrogen (N). Boron aids the plant’s transport of sugars and the development of a healthier flower. Nitrogen plays a major role in basic plant functions, such as photosynthesis, that go into maintaining higher yields. All this results in an increase in flower mass and overall size to deliver an impressive crop yield.
Bud Booster is a great choice for entry-level growers looking to introduce a flowering additive into their feed program.
HOW TO USE IT
Use at a rate of 6 grams per 20 litres (1 teaspoon per 5 gallons) when buds are forming and continue with every fertilizer application during the blooming cycle. Stop using in the last week of flowering.
