Adding fertilizer to your garden can have a tremendous impact on the health and longevity of your plants. Here's a quick overview of the main ingredients you'll find in fertilizer, and what each one of them does.
Nitrogen provides plants with the ability to produce more chlorophyll which results in lush, green leaves. Our 30-10-10 is perfect for evergreens.
Phosphorous aids in root development, increases flowering ability and bloom size. Use a fertilizer high in phosphorus when planting in the spring or when transplanting a tree or perennial. Our Transplanter with Root Stimulator (5-15-5) helps plants and trees overcome "transplant shock".
Potassium guards against disease and aids in drought protection and cold tolerance. It also helps in the process of photosynthesis. Consider using at the start of summer to protect flowers from temperature extremes or when insects and disease have caused damage to your plants.
