Adding fertilizer to your garden will enrich the soil and create stronger, more beautiful plants and flowers. The most common types are dry granular fertilizer and liquid fertilizer. Granular fertilizer, the most common, is slow releasing. Liquid fertilizers are quickly absorbed into the soil and easy to use with a garden hose.
Some fertilizers are packaged for certain uses and types of plants. This makes it easy to distribute the right nutrients to the right plants in your garden. Read labels for application times, amounts and conditions. Apply only as directed on the package.
Plant your garden in groupings according to their fertilizer needs.
To ensure you are using the correct type of fertilizer, purchase a soil testing kit.
