What Plants Need

As a gardener, you want to do everything possible to make sure your plants do their best. Plants need certain nutrients from the soil in order to reach their potential and when these elements are not present, the plant’s health suffers. Using fertilizer allows you to ensure your plants receive all of these necessary elements. Some of the desirable results from using fertilizer include:

  • Faster growth
  • Greener grass
  • Larger blossoms
  • Increased fruit size
  • Larger crop yield
  • Learn about the different uses and types of fertilizer for your plant. See how your garden will benefit from its use.
