Brush up on fertilizer knowledge this spring
March 20 was officially the first day of spring and it is evident by the activity around the garden centers that most gardeners are ready for the season.
Plants, outdoor fixtures and materials to maintain the landscapes and gardens are finding their way to the home. One of the common purchases by homeowners is fertilizer.
Fertilizers are materials containing plant nutrients that are added to the environment around the plant. Generally, they are added to the water or soil, but some can also be sprayed on the plant leaves.
