Make it look like spring again with Ironite! This granular iron product is simple to apply to your lawn and will make your lawn or plants turn green – not overnight but almost.
You might ask, why not just use some fertilizer? DON’T!!! Applying fertilizer to your lawn at this time of the year can burn your grass and can easily stripe your yard.
Plants need iron and cannot properly create chlorophyll without it. This results in poor growth because chlorophyll plays an important role in photosynthesis. Chlorophyll also gives plants their green color, and the primary symptom of iron deficiency are leaves that are yellow between their veins.
A 10 pound bag covers 5000 sq feet and is easily applied with a spreader.
Combine a granular ant killer with the Ironite into your spreader and get a 2 for 1 punch.
We hear this question daily. All plants – annuals, shrubs, perennials and trees need proper nutrients to grow, stay healthy and look good. But there are so many fertilizer choices it is easy to be discouraged and end up choosing the easy route – a slow-release fertilizer. Apply it once and be done with fertilizing for the season.
Sounds easy, right? While great for many plants (shrubs) it is not the best for your annuals and hanging baskets. They need more than a slow-release fertilizer can give them. They are best fed with a water-soluble fertilizer.
Water soluble fertilizers are fertilizers that can be dissolved in water and makes it is easy to control the precise amount of nutrients available to your plants. Soluble fertilizers usually have N-P-K numbers listed on their label. The N is for nitrogen, the P is for phosphorus and the K is for potassium or potash.
Of the 16 (12 of which are contained in water soluble fertilizers) known elements necessary for plant life, N-P-K, are the three that are of the most importance and always listed on water soluble fertilizers, in that order.
The ultimate goal of fertilizing is to supply your plant with the right amount of nutrients. Applying a water soluble fertilizer to the annuals and perennials both in the ground and in containers every 7 to 14 days can make a remarkable difference.
Ultimately, your plants will only be as great as the care they receive, and while understanding the best fertilizer for the job may take a little bit of work, the rewards of healthier, longer-lasting plants is the pay off.
Applied in correct combination; magnesium, iron, and manganese will keep fronds from yellowing or curling. How much and when depends on where you live.
