SLOW-RELEASE fertilisers are a boon to the absent-minded. You mix them into the earth, or with compost in pots, at the beginning of the growing season and then you can forget about feeding for the rest of the year. Vitax VN2 is a nine-month fertiliser, suitable for trees, shrubs and houseplants. Vitax VN3 is a six-month fertiliser to use with bedding plants and annuals and to feed plants in tubs and hanging baskets; 125g costs pounds 2.75.
