Garden Fertilizing: Two Steps to a Blossoming Garden

Whether your garden is full of rich herbs, plump vegetables, or stunning flowers, it takes meticulous work and garden care to create and maintain a garden. For that reason, garden fertilizing can be intimidating. Your plants need fertilizer to grow, but do you need a special fertilizer for fruit and vegetables? What about your delicate flowers, will certain fertilizers be too harsh? Simple Lawn Solutions carries the garden fertilizer your plants crave, with all the nurturing nutrients and none of the harmful fillers.

A Deeper Look at Your Soil / Soil Treatment

We recommend obtaining a soil test if you have not tested your soil in a while to get a good idea of the profile of your soil and what it may need.

The Organic Makeup of Micronutrients 

Once your soil is conditioned to hold onto nutrients, it’s time to add the micronutrients! The micronutrients your garden needs activate many plant functions. If you are looking for a product that contains micronutrients, our Micronutrient Booster is exactly what you need. 


Our Micronutrient Formula

By adding MicroBooster Micronutrient Fertilizer into your garden care routine, you are adding six essential nutrients that your soil will harness to develop and grow your garden plants. These nutrients are:

  •       Manganese
  •       Zinc
  •       Iron
  •       Magnesium
  •       Sulfur


Fruit & Vegetable Gardens

Seeing all those nutrients might cause hesitation if you are a fruit and vegetable grower. But never fear, our products and ingredients were designed to be safe on fruit, vegetables, flowers, and of course, your lawn! Remember what the soil conditioner and micronutrients are there to do: fend off disease and pests. Without these ingredients in your garden fertilizing, you might be picking fruit and vegetables that have harmful bacteria or the start of a disease. Instead of risking feeding those to your family, create a safe and healthy environment for your crops to grow!


Application of Garden Fertilizer Made Easy

The best time to condition your soil and apply your micronutrients is in the spring or fall. During these seasons, your garden soil is stable enough for some serious garden care and maintenance. You want to apply the Root Hume in four stages, but they vary, depending on if you have a fruit-forming garden or not. For a fruit-forming garden, condition in this order.

  1.     Planting
  2.     Active growing stage
  3.     Flowering stage
  4.     When the fruit forms


For non-fruit gardens, you can spread out the four applications however you like, but be sure to start at planting. Make sure to mix five ounces of Root Hume Soil Conditioner with one gallon of water for proper garden fertilizing concentration. The Micronutrient Booster is even easier; you can apply it as needed! We recommend using it every 10-14 days. Mix four tablespoons of the Micronutrient Booster to each gallon of water needed, depending on the size of your garden.
