The Florida fertilizer law

Published: Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 10:07 AM.

Fertilizer with a high percentage of natural organic nitrogen is used by the plants slowly over a fairly long period of time.  This kind of slow release fertilizer would be good for lawns helping them stay green without causing spurts of extra fast growth.

As I am sure you can tell by now, we can’t fully explain anything this complicated in one new article.  But if you don’t remember anything else remember this; almost any fertilizer you buy in Florida is a good one if tit has the ingredients to do the job you want and if the price is fair in terms of the total amount of plant nutrients it contains.

For more information on Florida fertilizer label contact the Gulf County Extension Service @ 639-3200 or visit our website  or www.  and see Publication  SL-3/SS170.
