Fertilizing Pond Plants

Hi, Iím Joe from webbsonline and today Iím going to discuss fertilizing your pond plants. Fertilizing your aquatic plants will ultimately maximize the overall health and beauty of each plant. In this video weíll review direct feeding using PONDTABBS fertilizer tablets.

Clean your pond

PONDTABBS are water soluble tablets that provide optimum feeding for all your potted aquatic plants. A trick Iíve learned Ė empty out the number of tablets you plan on using and then close the bottle. If your hands are wet and any water is left inside the bottle after itís closed Ė the next time you open the bottle you will have a bottle of dust. The moisture ultimately breaks down the integrity of the tablets.

Clean your pond

When used as directed this product will not affect algae growth or have any negative effects on fish. Itís recommended you feed your plants monthly during the growing season at a rate of one tablet per gallon of soil.

Clean your pond

To apply - insert the tablet deep into the soil a few inches from the crown of the plant. When using multiple tablets, space them uniformly around the plant. Nutrients will release within five minutes. When the water temperature rises above 72 degrees feeding should be increased to every two weeks.
