Wee fertiliser revived my hanging baskets.

I just wanted to let you know that a couple of weeks ago I decided to start watering my HBs with a mix of wee and water-about 4 parts water, 1 part wee. The HBs have been fed regularly all summer but were looking a bit bedraggled.
They have really perked up now-loads of new blooms on my petunias and the lobelia looks better too. I am now using it on all my plants. Other summer bedding is improving too-especially nicotianas

    It's great, but remember that it's high in Nitrogen, so anything you want to survive the winter, you should stop feeding it now, otherwise it will put on lush green growth that will be susceptible to bad weather.
    Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
