Fertiliser

Fertiliser

Fertiliser is the collective name for any product that contains nutrients necessary for plant growth.

Fertilisers may contain differing ranges of nutrients in differing quantities and with differing rates of release. They may be organic and/or inorganic in origin.

Importantly, all nutrients, whatever their source, have to be dissolved in water before they can be absorbed by plants.

So watering and fertilising are closely linked to each other.
