Why is it best not to fertilise in winter?

Submitted: 02:31PM, 20 Oct 2009
Answer: Most plants grow predominantly during the warmer months of the year. This is when they require both moisture and nutrients for growth. During winter, when there is no or minimal plant growth, plants require little or no nutrients, therefore it is unnecessary and also wasteful to fertiliser in winter.
