    What, if any, fertilizer should I use for my Gunnera that was planted 2 days ago?

    You can't go wrong with mushroom manure. Don't forget to water frequently as Gunnera love wet feet. A slow release, organically based fertilizer will get your Gunnera off to a good start in the spring.

    Does that mean I fertilize now for the spring or fertilize in the spring? Thank you so much for your time!
