Lawn and Garden Fertilizer Special for 2018
24-0-20 with 50% slow release nitrogen. $35.40/ 25kg bag
This is a great product for lawns, nitrogen for leaf health and potassium for root growth and plant strength. This fertilizer does not have any phosphorous which is something flowers and broadleaf plants like, this is good for a lawn environment because it’s nutrients favour what grass prefers over what other potential weeds would like. This type of fertilizer generally holds on for about 6 weeks. Most customers apply it once in the spring and then again in the mid-summer to early fall when rain is in the forecast. Because it has a high nitrogen and potassium number you can use this as your spring and fall fertilizer. When using in the fall aim to use it in the early fall so that you can get full value out of the nitrogen. One 25kg bag treats 10,000 square feet.
A balanced fertilizer that can be used on the lawn if you want to get a fast green up, or in flower and garden beds as well as around trees. Reduce the amount you use when applying to trees and plants with roots close to the surface such as cedar trees. Many garden and flower plants like a balanced fertilizer for example strawberries like 12-12-12, for those plants use the 16-16-16 at a lower rate. Many people like to keep a bag of this fertilizer in the garage so that they can apply it in small amounts over the summer to their flower beds. When storing, remember to keep the bag off cement by putting wood or cardboard under it so that the fertilizer does not become lumpy. This fertilizer generally lasts in the soil for about 4 weeks. Do not apply this product if you are expecting a long period without rain. Excessive use can cause plants to become top heavy and fall over. One 25kg bag treats 10,000 square feet.
This is fast release nitrogen. A cheap source of fertilizer, urea encourages leaf growth and darker foliage. We don’t recommend this product for everyone. Most people who purchase this are trying to quickly green up their lawns to make them look good for garden shows or before they list their house to sell. When used right you will get a dark green lawn but probably end up cutting it every other day. With this product there is an increased risk that homeowners will burn their lawns due to the concentration and high release rates for the nitrogen. Only apply this product when there is rain in the forecast, when the lawn is dry to the touch, and at half the rate of most bagged fertilizer (apply urea at 25kg per 20,000 square feet). Like all fertilizers make sure there are no sticks on the lawn that can trip or stall the spreader and fill spreaders on paved surfaces. If you spill this product you are guaranteed to burn your lawn. This product only lasts in the soil for about 3 weeks (the first 2 weeks are where most of the effect will be seen)
Similar to 8-32-16 this is another good garden and flower bed fertilizer. With its higher phosphorous number, you can encourage flowers and vegetables (the seed portion of plants) in soils that might have lower organic matter to start with (less organic P). One 25kg bag treats 10,000 square feet.
