Happy soil. Happy plants.
Spring is basically here. It's our favorite time of the year with endless possibilities right around the corner. Flowers are starting to bloom and if you're like us, you can almost taste the garden ripe tomatoes in your mouth.
Now is the time of the year when you should be putting the final touches on your garden prep. It's time to make some important decisions. One of the biggest determining factors for a successful gardening and lawn care season is your choice of fertilizer. We carry Landscapers Select. They've been producing quality products since 1974.
The first thing you are going to want to do is test your soil. Knowing the pH level of your soil will help you choose the right fertilizer that will enhance your soil.
There are 3 essential elements in all fertilizers and these are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Each bag of fertilizer will be labeled with numbers indicating the ratio of these elements in that specific fertilizer.
Perennials, annuals, veggies and your lawn will thank you if they are given a balanced granular fertilizer in early spring. Try to avoid during it before the storms as they will wash away all the good nutrients.
Come on down to Santee Hardware and we'll be able to help you find the fertilizer that will compliment your soil best.
