Fertiliser Explained

Going to your local Brisbane landscape supply store for fertiliser can be confusing. What works for flowers, what works on turf, what is best for winter plants but not summer plants? What even is fertiliser? 
Fertiliser must deliver a certain minimum number of nutrients to be given the term. All fertiliser will tell you the ingredients, ratio and formulation.   While it can be tricky to choose the right one, we've put together this short guide to some of the most popular.  

Organic Fertilisers
 

Organic fertilisers are as the name suggest and only comprise of non-artificial ingredients and living organisms. Organic fertilisers are great for the home landscaper because they can be easily incorporated as part of the overall landscaping plan.

Simply by using straw or mulch or even growing a junk crop and then digging it back through the soil is considered organic fertiliser. If that's too much effort, fertiliser does come in easy to apply liquid forms and dried form like bone meal and blood.

One of the biggest advantages of organic fertiliser is that they are safe for plants and groundwater (excellent if you drink from a bore) and will do no long-term damage.  

Inorganic
 

Inorganic fertilisers are chemical compounds that are either synthetic or mineral and usually consist of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium which will supercharge plant growth. These three base ingredients will be displayed on the packaging as the NPK ratio.  
Nitrogen - For growth of stems and leaves and is better suited to food plants.  
Phosphorus - Promotes the growth of flowers and larger fruit and is used accordingly.  
Potassium -  Helps a plant become more hardy and resistant to cold and pests.  
Other chemicals that might be found in inorganic fertiliser include calcium, sulphur, iron, zinc and magnesium. While all these minerals are produced naturally, plants want more of them for optimal growth. Give them what they need with inorganic fertiliser coming in a range of forms including powder, pellets, granules and liquid.  

Liquid
 

Liquid fertilisers come in both organic and inorganic forms and are an easy way to quickly apply much needed nutrients. They are a powerful form of fertiliser and can be applied directly to the root zone. A word of caution, while they are easy to apply, they are quickly absorbed and will need to be regularly reapplied if you want to see long-term results.   If your ever unsure about to what buy or how to apply, contact the friendly team at Blade Landscape Design who can guide in the right direction.
