Frequently asked questions
What can I use Flower Power on?
Anything that flowers or produces fruits especially summer flowering bedding plants (in pots, window boxes, hanging baskets and borders) like fuchsias, petunias, geraniums and begonias, roses, clematis, flowering shrubs, summer annuals such as sweet peas, hardy perennials like peonies and chrysanthemums, lilies, houseplants especially orchids, strawberries and all soft fruit, apples, pears, and vegetables including peppers, runner beans and courgettes. If you love growing tomatoes, you’ll love Flower Power! An independent trial run by Dr Arnie Rainbow showed that tomato plants fed with Flower Power produced over double the crop of tomatoes compared with identical tomato plants fed with the UK’s brand leading fertiliser.
How does Flower Power affect the flavour of fruit and vegetables?
The high levels of potash in Flower Power actually helps improve the flavour. So you get the best of both worlds…better tasting crops and more of them too!
Are there any other benefits?
Yes, the high potash content also helps:
- Increase hardiness (tolerance of frost and wind).
- Increase resistance to pests and diseases. As Lindsay Barnes from Wilmslow commented, “Richard, I’m very impressed with your plant food. It took minus 10 degrees centigrade of frost to kill off the last of the tubs.”
- Improve foliage colour.
How often should I use Flower Power?
From June to September feed your plants twice a week. For top yields with greenhouse tomatoes, feed them three times a week after the first truss has set.
How do I use Flower Power?
Simply add 5g (or one measuring scoop, which is supplied with the feed) to one gallon of water and stir well.
How much diluted feed does Flower Power make?
The super concentrated formula goes a long way. The 600g pack makes 120 gallons of diluted feed, the 750g pack makes 150 gallons and the 1.5kg pack makes 300 gallons.

Does it work?
The proof is in the results. Here’s a little experiment I did this winter showing a time lapse sequence of two plants, one fed with a brand leading fertiliser and the other with Flower Power. Richard Jackson’s own Flower Power plant food experiment.
