Further information to sell you on Summer Fertilizing:

 

If you’ve heard you are not supposed to fertilize your lawn in the summer heat, ignore that when using organic fertilizers. Synthetic fertilizers feed the plants directly. If they are not coated or formulated to be slow or controlled release, they dump the nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium chemicals they are mostly made from (the NPK on the label), all at once on the plants. The grass explodes with growth and swell up big, plump, and green. This is what everyone likes to see to know they have done something good for their lawn.

 

This fast growth doesn’t allow the plant’s internal defense chemistry to keep up and the bugs and diseases know this. Chinch bugs are the big problem in the heat of summer and to avoid them, “they” say to not fertilize.(chemically). Organics feed the soil microbes first. The microbes release nutrients the plants can then use. This middle-man makes organic fertilizers slow release and allows the plants to grow slowly and stronger. This everyone knows is how fertilizing should be done. So synthetic fertilizer is coated to slow down the release. Not all of the fertilizer is coated as this cost too much. And in the heat of our summer it may still breaks down quickly.

 

Rohde’s 6-2-4 GreenSense All Purpose Lawn and Garden Fertilizer gives you the slow release for healthier plants, promotes soil life which is the foundation of organics, and supplies much more than a few chemicals. It is made a variety of organic products used in the livestock feed industry to supply the nitrogen and phosphorus, along with naturally or synthetic derived source of potassium with the purity for acceptance as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA. Products that contained the minerals, proteins, and enzymes needed for life, as it comes from life. This makes organic fertilizer much more complete.

 

As you may have noticed from the name “All Purpose”, this fertilizer is good on everything. It is held in a pellet form with molasses for easy spreading in a “cyclone” type spreader, one that has the paddle wheel underneath to sling the pellets around the yard. Of course it will work great in drop spreaders or just “chicken feeding” by hand too. The pellets melt quickly with little watering making it good for gardens. By this I mean instead of getting on your knees to brush the wood mulch away from your plants to “side dress” the roots with fertilizer each month, I just throw it on top of the mulch to let it dissolve into the soil eventually and save my knees for other things, like walking.

 

So spread and throw handfuls of GreenSense fertilizer over grass, shrubs, around trees, and in all of your gardens. Vegetable and annual gardens need fertilizing once a month with granular organic fertilizers. Lawns with trees and shrub fertilize every 3 or 4 months or spring and fall at least. Native planting may not need any fertilizing though, particularly if you mulch with compost once or twice a year.
