When to fertilize

Knowing when to fertilize is as important as using the right fertilizer. If you don’t apply the fertilizer at a time when the plumeria can use it, there’s no point in fertilizing. Most plumerias bloom great if fed with a balanced granular fertil­izer in early spring. Avoid fertilizing before the spring showers or you will be throwing your money away since the nutrients will simply leach out of the soil. Using a slow release is best.

Annuals like to be fed an additional three to four times during the growing season with a high-phosphorus, water-soluble fertilizer, while Plumeria benefits from a balanced granular application in early spring.

Just remember, these guidelines on feeding are just that—guidelines. Read the package directions before scattering both food and caution to the wind.
