Fertilisers feed plants in their different growth stages (vegetative and flowering) and provide nutrients to the plants. The balance of fertilisers is mostly defined by N.P.K which is Nitrogen(N), Phosphorous(P) and Potassium(K). Different fertilisers can vary in elements. Each element brings different benefits to your plant. Balancing what you give your plants is crucial as imbalances can create other issues in your plants growth!
Example: Growmore has an N.P.K of 7-7-7 meaning it is a balanced fertiliser.
- Nitrogen (N): it directly contributes to the development of plant material as it is a crucial element during the growth phase. Nitrogen is important for the formation of a sturdy, well-developed plant structure with vigorous foliar mass, which translates into a healthy, powerful plant ready to produce great yields.
- Phosphorus (P): an important element for the formation of roots, flowers and buds.
- Potassium (K): when combined with phosphorus, potassium boosts root development, whereas potassium and nitrogen together enhance the development of green tissue and flowers.
- Magnesium (Mg): it efficiently contributes to the production of chlorophyll, an essential element for photosynthesis and, consequently, for overall growth.
- Calcium (Ca): it helps adjust the soil's pH and contributes to good root growth.
- Sulphur (S): it actively promotes the growth of different plant organs.
