Just looking for some advice on feeding my hedging.

I have a 4/5 year old beech hedge that needs feeding and recall been told to use Fish, Blood and Bonemeal on it. Is this advice correct?

I also have a new Hornbeam hedge that I planted in March with some Chicken Manure Pellets. Could I use the same on this?

Neither are planted in very good quality soil so they definitely need some help.

Thanks

hi qwerty
blood fish and bone will do just fine. if you have a compost heap you could mulch the base with some also.
