Q.Feeding Needs for Grapes

Anonymous added on May 31, 2011 | Answered

I planted a Lakemont seedless grapevine and wanted to know if I should be providing any feeding or soil conditioner, similar to how I provide soil acifier to blueberries. Also, do blackberries require or need feeding?

I give my tomato plants sodium phosphate. Is it ok to provide this feeding to my other vegetable plants like cukes, radishes, lettuce and carrots? Are there other fruit bearing or flowers that can benefit from sodium phosphate?

They don't need acidifiers, but for both plants, fertilizing once a year will help them grow better. Any plant that flowers or fruits benefits from the addition of phosphorus. Just be careful for any plant, including the tomatoes, that you do not add too much.
