Why Plants Need Fertilizers

plant fertilizerEach soil type has its own mix of nutritional ingredients, so before considering what fertilizers a plant may require, it is important to consider the soil in which a plant is growing. In some cases, the nutrients are not naturally there to begin with or have been used up over time. For these reasons,  the keepers of the garden, must replenish, replace, or help release those elements that are no longer available to our plants.

When fertilizing, more does not mean better. It is possible to overfeed your plants. Too much fertilizer can damage and  even kill your plants. Before using any fertilizer, it’s wise to have your soil tested so you can select the type and formula that suits your plants’ needs. This will let plants show more blooms, lusher greens, produce more fruits and vegetables.
