The Big Boost Challenge involves using Baby Bio Outdoor® Flowers & Shrubs to show just what a difference the right plant food can make to your plants’ size, health and number of flowers.
Baby Bio® Outdoor Flowers & Shrubs is a liquid feed tailored to the needs of flowering plants and shrubs, giving you up to 70% more flowers compared with not feeding. It aims to support healthy, balanced growth, resulting in larger, brighter flowers and lush green leaves.
To take the Big Boost Challenge, you plant two identical containers, feed one of them every two weeks with Baby Bio Outdoor® Flowers & Shrubs, and just water the other one. With the container that’s fed with Baby Bio Outdoor®, after seven days you can expect to see noticeably greener, healthier leaves. After four weeks the plants will be up to 20% larger than the ones in the container that has just been watered, and after six weeks you can expect them to have up to 70% more flowers, which will last longer too.
I started the project back in May, planting up two identical containers with summer-flowering plants. Since then I’ve been watering one of the containers with just water, and the other with Baby Bio® Outdoor Flowers & Shrubs. It’s really easy to use; you just use the measuring cup lid to add 10ml per litre of water in your watering can, then water as normal.
Here’s how my containers looked at the start of the challenge:
Four weeks later, the difference was starting to show:
At this point we should be seeing up to 20% bigger plants in the ‘Fed’ container, and the difference is definitely there. The plants in the ‘Fed’ container are bigger, their leaves are greener, and there are lots more flowers.
Since then, we’ve had so much rain that the plants have had to withstand a bit of a battering! Let’s take a look at how they’re doing.
This picture was taken after 6 weeks; at this stage we can expect up to 70% more flowers in the ‘Fed’ container. This is definitely the case with the purple and white petunia, isn’t it! The other plants aren’t showing such a big difference in number of flowers, but all of them are larger and look more healthy.
This next picture was taken after 8 weeks:
Looking at the plants from above really illustrates the difference in size; the ‘Fed’ plants are tumbling over the sides of the container much more.
As you can see, at 8 weeks the results are pretty much as promised, with larger, healthier plants that have more flowers.
From this stage on we can expect to see longer lasting blooms on the plants that have been fed with Baby Bio® Outdoor Flowers & Shrubs. I’m going to carry on the Big Boost challenge throughout the summer, so look out for my next update in a month’s time to see if Baby Bio® Outdoor continues to keep it’s promises!

I’m using the other product in the Baby Bio Outdoor range, Baby Bio® Outdoor Fruit & Veg, at my allotment this Summer. It’s tailored to the needs of fruit and vegetable plants, giving you up to 35% more produce compared to using a standard fertiliser. You can read more about my plants’ progress here and here.
