Plant Food


In order to have the healthiest lawn or field possible, it is important to use the correct plant food. There are different types of plant food depending on what you are planning on using it for. Plant food is usually available for specific uses such as golf courses, farms, green parks, and for the home owner. Each type has a specific purpose and is beneficial for its area. The most common type that is found is for general use around the home.

You can purchase plant food in a few different forms. These forms include concentrated liquid, soil blended with organic materials, and pellets in the form of a spike. No matter what type of plant food is selected it is important to choose one that is ecologically friendly and does not contain chemicals that can harm the environment.

Plant food for the home owner can also be broken down into several categories depending on which part of the home one is using it for. The most obvious is plant food for a lawn to keep it growing and very green in color. However, there are other plant foods that can be used to grow flowers, trees and shrubs, vegetables, house plants, and even citrus or palm trees. Each of these types of plant foods can be purchased at a nursery or garden center, which takes away any guessing. They contain directions on how and when to use them and the plant foods are already mixed with the right combination of materials such as nitrogen.

If someone does not want to spend the money to purchase these plant foods, there are also many options to create homemade plant food. These homemade plant foods usually contain everyday items from around the house and are often leftover foods that would be thrown away as scraps. Some of the common materials found in homemade plant food include egg shells, coffee grounds, and water. There are many recipes that can be found with a little research and will end up saving someone money if they have time to make them.
