Do you Fertilize
Just wondering if any fertilize your Hercs.
If you do what fertilize you use, and how often?
I see many directions say Hercs do not need fert. But the instructions say fertile moist soil. I have to ask how many of us have this perfect fluffy fertile woodland garden soil? Of course to garden you should and do improve your soil with compost but.....if that does not give you the perfect soil why is it assumed or instructions given that Hercs do no need Fertilizer.
I stumbled on increasing survival of my Hercs by doing 2 things. I have switched to only buying the ones I know that seem to have stronger growth records for my zone...for me it is Villosa and I fertilize once a month. I use half strength of M-grow acid fertilizer. Since I started doing that I have not lost any for 3 years. I get vigorous growth and improved color.
