Advantages Seems to work well, child proof cap, good sized bottle.
Disadvantages Not sure how well it actually works as nothing to compare against.
I've just this year started growing vegetables in my garden as this is the first time I've lived in a student house for more than one year. This has meant that I can have big pots in the garden without the need to move them half way through the year. I have decided to grow tomatoes and courgettes as they are easy to grow and I like both the vegetables. To help with the plants growth I bought a 175ml bottle of Baby Bio plant food as the plants are kept in pots with cheapish compost in them.--- The Bottle ---
On the front of the wrapper it has the Baby Bio name in a green font with a yellow stripe of colour that wraps its way around the bottle. There is also the Anthony Nolan charity logo on the front as money from the sales of these bottles go towards the charity. The rear has lots of small text with information about the fertiliser and how to use it.--- The Fertiliser ---
I have found that when you aren't using the bottle, if it is left for a few days between usage, the fertiliser can dry up around the rim of the cap. This isn't too much of a problem as it can be scrapped off into a watering can, but it also flakes off when you open the cap, which therefore leads to loss of the fertiliser.I have been using this fertiliser on my tomatoes and courgettes for quite a while now and I have found that it seems to of made an improvement into the growth of the plant. I don't have anything to compare it against though so I don't know the full extent of the improvement it has made. I have been using this bottle since I planted the seeds for the plants and that was in March. There isn't very much left in the bottle now, but this is probably because I am quite generous when I use it. I feel that if I used the amounts stated on the bottle it would last a lot longer.
I have also been feeding my plants cold tea as I have heard this is good for them also. I simply place my used tea bags in a large beaker, fill it up with hot water and then leave to go cold again. I then dilute the resulting tea into about 2 litres and then water the plants with this. I feel that this has also helped with the growth of the plants and is a (nearly) free fertiliser for the plants.--- Where To Buy ---
