Q.What is the right feed for my front garden?

Zone Hastings, South East | Anonymous added on May 15, 2020 | Answered

I’ve redone my front garden 2 years ago ( east facing). I took away the topsoil to get rid off the grass and planted chamomile instead as a cover. The problem is that the soil is very hard clay and I keep topping it up with compost once a year. I have a mixture of plants that are doing well despite the soil conditions.
I have a few mini conifers, peonies, azaleas, London pride, heucheras, Japanese anemone, hydrangea, hosta and fern.
I am using liquid seaweed to feed all the plants at the moment. Is that suitable for all the plants or shall I use different feeds?
Also I have 3 pyracantha plants in a tall pot on a north wall.They are full of blooms but the leaves keep getting brown spots? Anything that the plant is missing?

You probably need to add additional N-P-K fertilizer as the seaweed only provides trace amounts of the macro nutrients. Also your azalea would benefit from fertilizer for acid loving plants. You can search our website for each of your plants and an article should tell you what kind of fertilizer that specific plant needs.

Your pyracantha may have a blight problem. See info below.
