Planting and care
Feed plants on a regular basis before and throughout the blooming cycle (avoid chemical fertilizers and pesticides if you are harvesting for the kitchen).Once a month between April and July, apply a balanced granular fertilizer (5-10-5 or 5-10-10). Allowto 1 cup for each bush, and sprinkle it around the drip line, not against the stem.
Alternanthera snow top care
Plants prefer a near-neutral pH range of 5.5 to7.0. A pH of 6.5 is just about right for most home gardens (slightly acidic to neutral).An accurate soil test will tell you where your pH currently stands. Acidic (sour) soil is counteracted by applying finely ground limestone, and alkaline (sweet) soil is treated with ground sulfur.
