One of the most common questions asked by our customers is about what kind of fertilizer to use, how to keep their plants healthy when they are away during the summer, and the benefits of using organic vs. inorganic fertilizers. This is a subject that has overwhelming amounts of information available, much of it contradictory.
Plant nutrition is vital to obtain optimal plant growth. The soil in Southwest Florida is unique with high soil temperatures and heavy rainfall in the summer months. Fertilizers not specifically formulated for our climate and soil may break down quickly, doing little good for plants and our environment. Our normally sandy soils are generally alkaline and lack necessary nutrients. Regular fertilizer applications are essential.
