Grassland Garden Supplies: Best fertilisers for plants

Taking care of plants can be a bit overwhelming for beginners in the US, especially when you don’t know where to start. You’ve watered, pottered and pruned your plants at home, yet they still look the same and less vibrant than ever. You’re starting to think that you may not have a green thumb after all, and starting your garden is not for you. 

In the case of humans, they need medicines, fruit shakes and vitamins to supplement their diet and help with their natural body growth. This is the same with plants. If you notice that their growth seems slow, it might be time to use a fertiliser. Although plants get their food from photosynthesis, they also need other micronutrients to stay alive.

Here are the best fertilisers in the market you should consider:

Jobe’s Organics All-Purpose Fertiliser

It’s pretty hard to find something in the US that meets the needs of every kind of plant in terms of growing conditions and soil types. However, Jobe’s Organics All-Purpose Fertiliser may just be the thing for that. With this fertiliser, your plants can achieve a productive growing season with a 4-4-4 mix of nitrogen for potassium, phosphorus and stem and leaf growth.

It’s also safe to use around children and pets! A 6-pound bag of granular fertiliser is enough to cover a total of 1,200 cubic feet in the garden. It will also enrich the soil to give way to microbes and enhance water use. The only downside of this fertiliser is it doesn’t have weed killers.

Miracle-Gro Water-Soluble All Purpose Plant Food

If you have a container plant, then you might be having a hard time looking after it. It can be a bit tricky since you need to apply the fertiliser up to the root system, which is not always easy to pull off. The good news is that Miracle-Gro Water-Soluble All Purpose Plant Food is here to back you up.

Since you can just mix what you need, this fertiliser is incredibly cost-effective. It’s also recommended to use for foliage plants, flowers and vegetables because the mineral-based formula does not damage plant roots. Just always remember that the powdered formula should stay dry at all times or else it may clump. 

Dr Earth Home Grown Organic Tomato, Vegetable, & Herb Fertiliser

If you’re planning to start a full vegetable garden in the US, Dr Earth Home Grown Organic Tomato, Vegetable, & Herb Fertiliser is right up your street. You can use this fertiliser to start growing tomato plants since homegrown tomatoes are typically ripe and juicy. 

Its 4-6-3 NPK formula contains enough calcium for proper growth development as well as fish-based organic matter. Keep in mind that you should also reapply it every two weeks, especially during the growing season.
