Gardening Jargon – foliar feeding

Activity of applying fertilizers directly on plant leaves which in turn gets absorbed directly through the leaves is called foliar feeding. Effect of foliar feeding is quick but short-lived.

Foliar feeding helps when plants that have suffered serious root damage, one can apply liquid fertilizer as a foliar spray to the plant leaves.

Fish emulsion is a best example.
