Flower & Bloom Plant Food Mix

At Sunday, we love our lawns. But yards are more than that, and as the saying goes, variety is the spice of life. What better way to add diversity to your little slice of land (and support the surrounding ecosystem) than adding in some colorful flower beds? Sunday now offers our Flower & Bloom garden fertilizer to help your garden blossom.

What’s In It?

Sunday’s Flower & Bloom 4-4-3 plant food mix is a complete nutrient source, providing nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium along with other important nutrients. The balanced formula in our Flower & Bloom fertilizer is specially designed to help support flower development and sustained growth. Ingredients include soy protein, composted turkey litter and feather meal, to provide a slow release of nutrients, build organic matter, and power soil microbes. The lower nitrogen helps prevent excess foliar growth that can pull energy away from flower production, while the small boost of phosphorus helps promote blooms. It’s a great option for flowers, bulbs and wildflower gardens.

How Do You Use It?

Always read and follow the labeled instructions for any fertilizer to avoid harming your plants or the environment!

To feed your garden using Sunday’s Flower & Bloom fertilizer, do the following: 

  1. Fertilize. The amount will vary depending on the type of plant you’re feeding:
    1. Containers: mix 2 tbsp of dry fertilizer per gallon of soil or potting mix before planting new containers OR sprinkle 1 tbsp per 4 inch pot diameter onto existing containers.
    2. Flower beds and bulbs: work dry plant food into the top 4 inches of soil, using 1 cup per 25 square feet.
  2. Water. After fertilizing, make sure to irrigate so those plant roots can soak up the nutrients.
  3. Repeat. Reapply every 4-6 weeks, as instructed by the label.
  4. Blossom. Now that they’re well fed, watch your flowers blossom! Make sure to weed and water as necessary.

Help Your Garden Bloom

Flowers add diversity, color and texture to the landscape, and are a great way to play around with your creative side. Plus, planting flowers is one way to support pollinators and other wildlife.
