fertilizing baskets

Post  Maltese on Fri Feb 17, 2017 3:10 pm

Hello everyone,
Has anyone of you used anything more than the classical fertilizing baskets like the one in the picture attached?  like something homemade?   I am finding it a problem to keep on buying these baskets as they tend to break because of brittleness after a summer or so.  
Any idea or comments?

I use tea bags, I bought 500 for about £8 from China. They will last another year, works well, and also keeps moisture in.

I have seen PVC pipes cut down to size for use.
Hot water type or normal water pipes.
Laters.

My suggestion would be to look up Walter Pall article on watering and fertilizing then go get some inorganic fertilizer like Miracle Grow.
No stink. No mess. No animals digging around in your trees. No bugs living in them also.

I will try the tea bag option as geoffm5eay suggested

I love to use both slow release and fast release - for the slow release I normally use a synthetic one which is odor less. I find it convenient because each time you are watering you are filling gaps in the nutrition needs of the plant which may be left out by the liquid one
