When you’re approaching the end of the flowering and fruiting phases of your plant’s lifecycle, the nutrient intake slows down dramatically even through there are considerable amounts of nutrient reserves left in the medium and plant structures, including leaves, fruit, flowers & sap. This is the plant showing you that its ripening and almost ready to harvest.
When nutrient reserves are not completely depleted before harvesting the final crop, it can impart a slightly metallic and intensely bitter taste from the left-over nutrients. Hydrotops Flush ensures the correct balance of enzymes, organic plant hormones and catalysts are supplied to the plant that aid in ‘flushing’.
Flushing is the process of removing excess nutrients from the medium which forces the plant to use up its remaining stored resources, creating a cleaner product. The use of Hydrotops Flush is incredibly important in the quality and taste of your harvest. It has been compared in importance to using a PK booster to increase flowering and fruiting yield.
Head Start is available as a hard and soft water variant to suite your water source. Most of the tap water in England is hard, while Scotland, wales cornwall and the north-west have a soft-water source. The soft water nutrient has been developed to include more magnesium and calcium than the hard water type to account for lower baseline levels. If you’re using a reverse osmosis filter, use the soft water variant.
We also stock an East London formulation of Hydrotops that works well with any tap water that’s closer than 15 miles as the crow flies from our Chigwell store, covering all east London and some of Essex. See the map below to see which areas are covered by Hydrotops East London formulation.
For best results use in conjunction with the rest of the hydrotops range, following their feed schedule. Don’t use any products that contain peroxide or other sterilizing agent as there are live bacteria and fungus whose populations will be killed.
Hydrotops specialise in ‘custom formulations’ which require a sample of your tap water to specially manufacture plant food that has a profile with the exact ratios of nutrients required for stunning results. Pop in to one of our stores for a sample bottle, more info on hydrotops custom formulations and how tailored nutrients can take your garden to the next level.
