Why fertilize?
You’re gone to all the trouble to pick out the perfect color palette of flowers and decided what vegetables would best match up with your family’s taste. So, set up your plants for success! Fertilizing your plants and lawn is essential for strong, healthy growth.

Why fertilizing is important
Yellowing between leaf veins indicates a deficiency of magnesium (leaves may also be tinted brown or red). Potassium deficiency also causes yellowing, purple or brown tints, and poor flowering. No flowers could indicate excess nitrogen. This is why a regular fertilizing program is so important!
Fertilize your lawn in the spring when the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees, when the grass starts growing. This is usually before mid-April. Fertilizer contains nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium, the primary nutrients needed for a healthy lawn. The second dose of fertilizer for lawns should follow four weeks later and then every six to eight weeks after that through October. Your lawn should use between 2 and 3 pounds of nitrogen over the growing season. 
Key benefits include:
  • A beautiful lawn
  • No need to plan time to fertilize
  • No need to keep track of fertilizer calendar
  • Professional, friendly service

Fruiting crops – such as tomatoes and pumpkins, do well once every two or three weeks.
Permanent plants –, especially fruit trees or bushes, benefit in early spring after weeding and before mulching.
Roses – are best served in spring after pruning.
Temporary plantings – in containers and hanging baskets use fertilizer every ten days in summer.
Lawns – use fertilizer with high-nitrogen content in spring and fall.
Shrubs – should be fertilized in spring.
