To promote growth in plants, fertilizer is commonly used and it’s applied to the soil after it’s naturally obtained or through a chemical process. It’s a fact that generally healthier than those that are manufactured are natural products which is why the best type to use is often natural fertilizer. Fertilizer, alone, is designed to provide three major plant nutrients in various proportions. Humans need nutrition in order to grow and thrive as do plants and it is important to make sure that crops receive the proper care and nutrition during their growth process.
Chemical fertilizer may lead to surface runoff if over applied, which is easier to do than with natural products. This can often lead to problems with growing and may even be dangerous to wildlife. Over applying natural fertilizer may be possible but still, unlike chemical products their release rates are generally a lot less.
Depending on the fertilizer, various storage requirements must be met. Carefully studying the ingredients and storage instructions on the fertilizer packaging is a good idea if they are commercially purchased. Knowledge of the nutrient content and requirements will help to maintain a healthy crop, usable fertilizer and less pollution to the garden.
Fertilizer is commonly used in gardening, but it also used for growing flowers and plants. Commercial fertilizer is available at most home improvement stores or in the gardening department at most retailers. Just before spring when planting becomes seasonal, most fertilizer products are sold because during the winter months, plants and gardens are not abundant. The crops may be eliminated by a late frost if the planting is done too early and this will be a waste of planting and fertilizer. Fertilizer will be widely available in stores in the early spring because typically, the weather is ideal for planting during this time.
The different crop planting seasons will be provided by geographical locations as well as various climates. Gardening may be restricted to mainly spring and summer months in other parts of the world but in some areas, they have success with gardening during most of the year. It is important to know the optimal growing season for each individual location because extreme cold and inclement weather will cause havoc on crops.
Before you purchase fertilizers, it is important to thoroughly reading the care and usage instructions is recommended. Before proceeding with use, you first need to read any caution or warning labels. These products should be kept out of children’s reach and may also prove harmful for animals.
