Spring brings a mass of colour to your garden, with flowers such as hellebores blooming. It is important to make sure that you are keeping your plants well fed to get the best results out of them.

  • Hellebores are hardy, tough and reliable plants that flower for an extremely long time, blooming from mid-winter through to late spring – so long as they are treated right.
  • Hellebores can be grown in a diverse range of soils, though adding age compost to the soil prior to planting is always a good idea. They grow best in shady positions in the garden.
  • Powerfeed Pro-Series Roses and Flowers is the perfect food for your hellebores. This is a liquid fertiliser, which means it will go to work right away.
  • You can add 50ml of fertiliser to a standard 9-litre watering can, then apply it directly over your plants.
  • The fertiliser contains active liquid composts, which improves the soil health and maximises the nutrient uptake for all flowering plants. It is boosted with seaweed, which will stimulate the root system and reduce stress from heat, drought, frost, pests and disease.
  • Powerfeed will counteract yellowing leaves and will reward you with a healthier plant. On top of this, it will stimulate larger, more colourful flowers without excessive foliage growth.
