Q.

Hi, what causes stunted growth in veges?

Hi Keat,

Plant's require and use up nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium as they grow, and if they are deficient in these certain nutrients it can cause stunted growth. Make sure to feed your vegetables with a suitable fertiliser in key growth periods such as Tui Vegetable Food. Also adding organic matter to your soil such as compost and sheep pellets enriches it with nutrients that your veges can absorb. 

To know what your soil really needs you are best to do a simple soil test with a soil test kit. This will help you work out what specific nutrients you need to add.

Thanks, Tui Team.
