Fertiliser question & answer

Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) are the three numbers
that are separated by hyphens on the fertilizer packages. They represent
the percentage of each nutrient in the fertilizer. For example,
10-20-10 fertilizer has 10% nitrogen (N), 20% phosphorus (P), and 10%
potassium (K).

Higher NPK amounts do not always mean more effective fertilizer.
Higher amounts can cause problems. These problems
include:

  • Risk of “burning” your plant roots, causing them to become weak and possibly die.
  • Risk of fertilizer runoff into waterways, which can cause water pollution.
  • Risk of nutrient build-up.
  • Excess nutrients could cause the risk of pests attacking.

An average rule of thumb is every 6-8 weeks. It is possible to over fertilise which may cause the ground to become scorched if over applied. Fertiliser is best applied within 4-6 hours of light rain or in damp conditions. Please consult your chosen product description. If you are still unsure, call us on 01706 360 572.
