How To Choose The Right Fertiliser For Your Garden

Once the nutrients are released and absorbed by the soil then only it becomes available to the plants.

Do you sometimes wonder why your plants are stunted in growth? Plants get nutrients and nourishment from the soil. As the plants grow, the nutrients in the soil get rapidly used up and pretty soon, there is none left. The roots of the plant then begins to explore the surrounding area invariably leading to a clash with roots of other plants. The solution is to recharge the soil through use of fertiliser and you begin by choosing the right fertiliser for your garden.

Where convenient, we recommend you get your soil tested so see what nutrients are present and in what percentage. Based on the test results, you can custom feed the soil the nutrients that require to be replenished. Yes it sounds terribly complicated but if you continue to read, you will know it is actually quite simple.

If you visit any garden supplies store, watch out for the fertiliser bags and note the labels. You might see some weird numbers on them. These numbers reflect the percentage of nitrogen, phosphate and potash in that bag i.e. the nutrient ratios. So, a 7-12-7 fertiliser bag contains 7% nitrogen, 12% phosphate, and 7% potash. Another bag might have 5-10-0. Which means it has no potash. There, now based on the soil test report, you can choose the right fertiliser bag for your Lawn Mowing Bligh Park.

Organic fertilisers: The difference between organic (natural) and chemical fertiliser is the speed of replenishment. Chemical fertiliser nourishes the soil almost instantly and results are visible virtually overnight. Organic fertiliser has to first decompose into the soil before the soil can absorb the nutrients released during the decomposition process. Once the nutrients are released and absorbed by the soil then only it becomes available to the plants.

So does this mean chemical fertiliser are better? Chemical fertilisers are used by farmers because they do not have the time to wait for organic fertiliser to decompose. Also, you have to be very careful when using chemical fertiliser – if you put even a vee bit more than required, it will burn the roots of the plants. It is like giving a patient excess dosage of a powerful drug. It is therefore best if chemical fertilisers are applied only by professionals. When it comes to organic fertiliser there is no such thing as too much or too little so it is totally safe for garden use.

• Organic fertilisers contribute organic matter to your soil thereby feeding soil microbes, improving soil structure, fighting fungal and bacterial diseases, and contributing to micro-nutrients in the soil.
• Most organic fertiliser is slow release of nutrients so plants get a steady supply of fresh energy.
• These days Gardening Services Penrith supply chains also stock organic fertilisers that have been pre-formulated in a manner similar to chemical fertiliser but without the chemical effect. Thus, you have organic fertilisers with 5% nitrogen, 5% phosphate and 5% potash and so forth.

Whether you choose organic or chemical should ideally depend on the state of your garden. If your plants need immediate nutrition, chemical fertiliser will do the trick. It might be best though, to use a mix of organic and chemical – i.e. a vee bit of chemical fertiliser to perk up the soil and rest powered by organics.

If chemical fertilisers are going to be used, it is best if you call the professionals at Fox Mowing – they would not only be able to test and diagnose the soil, they would know exactly which remedy would best suit your garden. More information here: http://foxmowingnsw.com.au
