Hi. I planted sweet william for cutting last summer. They survived the winter but look the worst for wear. Should I give them a feed in may or will they brighten up by themselves. Thanks.

they'll pick up, but they would also thank you for a feed.
Bill.

Thanks Bill. Have just bought some organic pelleted fertilizer in Aldi. First time using any such fertilizer in the vegetable garden. Will I just throw a few handfuls amongst them some rainy day in May. Mind you this fertilizer also says it can be dissolved in water. Perhaps I would be better to make up a water based solution and feed them directly. Any thoughts?

If it's soluble I would do it that way. I'm a phostrogen man mysely if I need it, but my old favourite is home made liquid manure.
Bill.
