In Layman’s terms, fertilisers are a concentrated source of plant nutrients that are used to improve health, growth & appearance. They come in a variety of forms including Pellets, Granules, Powders and Liquids.
So why does grass benefit from the application of fertiliser? The quicker growing the plant, the more it will benefit from additional nutrients, making fertiliser for both grass and turf incredibly effective. Most fertilisers centre around three key ingredients which are Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. Nitrogen provides green leafy growth, Phosphorus provides healthy root and shoot growth, whilst Potassium increases resilience.
A great deal of our customers use pre-seeder fertiliser when sowing grass seed, to give the new seed the best possible start in life. Once the seed has established, many then use a broad spectrum fertiliser to supply the grass with vital nutrients throughout the growing season. If you have any questions about which fertiliser is right for you, just get in touch and we will be happy to help.
