Nutrients for Your Life
Homeowners can grow much of the high-quality produce they
find at the grocery store in their own gardens – with
a little help from a sound garden fertilizer program.
Green lawns, healthy trees, gardens and flower beds add a special quality of life for many around the world. Keeping this beauty healthy requires the wise use of plant nutrients.
Homeowners, landscape designers and lawn care providers face nutrient challenges much like those farmers face. They need plant nutrients that will meet the needs of lawns, trees, shrubbery, flowers and vegetable gardens in an efficient, cost-effective and predictable way. They need to manage costs and avoid fertilizer runoff just as farmers do. And gardeners and homeowners have the same responsibility for its stewardship as well.
Whether you’re growing geraniums in a window box, tomatoes along the back fence, grapes for fine wines, or a huge field of sunflowers, efficient growth and sound stewardship mean making the most of nutrients. Go to a garden supply store, and there you’ll find dozens, if not hundreds, of products, each claiming to be exactly what you need. How do you know for certain what you need, and which product will provide it?
