Spring Has Sprung

Just as the little plants outside are starting to unfurl their fresh green leaves our indoor plants too will be putting out new growth. How about giving them a little treat? This is the time to start feeding them.
Most house plants love a feed in spring and summer. Usually feeding every other week is enough. You can use any liquid houseplant feed, just make sure you use the right quantity.
