General Fertilizer Notes:
Plants require fertilizer to thrive and increase productivity. Nutrients should be added to the soil regularly. Fertilizers are either organic or synthetic. We offer complete selection of both types to meet your needs.
On fertilizer labels, you’ll see three sets of numbers such as 12-24-12, which refers to levels of N-P-K. Nitrogen (N) encourages the plant to grow and makes it dark green. Phosphorus (P) stimulates the roots and helps the plant produce more blooms. Potassium (K) helps make the plant stranger and more disease resistant.
Use a high nitrogen fertiliazer for lawns and vegetables that don’t bloom, and a high phosphorous fertilizer for flowering or fruiting plants. Foliage plants prefer an equally-balanced fertilizer.
Your lawn shade trees and shrubs require fertilizer when they begin to grow each spring, and at their peak in early summer. Fruit and nut trees require fertilizer when new growth begins in spring, and again immediately following harvest. Vegetables require fertilizer at least once a month.
All trees, shrubs, and lawns should be fertilized in late fall with “winterizer”. The fertilizers are applied after the plants are at rest. Some nutrition is used and keeps plants strong, and the rest remains in the soil to be used when growth starts again in early spring.
