Spring is upon us and lawn and garden care moves to the top of the list. Agri-Nutrients fertilizer 17-5-9 is on sale for $16.99 per 50lb bag at Ark Country store this month. Fertilizer for lawn and gardens means adding nutrients to help your plants and grass grow. It’s basically plant food with nutrients.
- Why should you fertilize? Healthy, well-fed plants tend to produce more and take in nutrients and water more efficiently. Looking for a higher yield in your vegetable garden or a thick lush lawn, use fertilizers.
- What does NPK mean? When you look at the package, you’ll notice an N, P and K. These are the symbols for 3 key elements that help plants perform their best.
- Nitrogen (N) helps plant foliage to grow strong.
- Phosphorous (P) helps roots and flowers grow and develop.
- Potassium (K) is important for overall plant health. It regulates metabolism and water absorption.
- How to apply fertilizer in your garden? Organic soil nutrients such as compost or aged manure can be added to the soil before planting or side-dressed around established plants. Vegetable producers such as tomatoes, squash, peppers and melons need regular feeding. Consider liquid fertilizers every 7 to 10 days. Remember to hold off on the fertilizer during periods of extreme heat.
