Hortifoska autumn fertilizer for lawns is a granular phosphorus-potassium fertilizer intended for autumn fertilization of lawns. Also perfect for fertilizing ornamental grasses, e.g. miscanthus, fescue, pampas grasses and other grasses with high nutritional requirements. The fertilizer is primarily used to prepare plants for difficult winter conditions. It is worth starting to use autumn fertilizers in summer (even from July, instead of nitrogen fertilizers).
Hortifoska autumn fertilizer for lawns is packed in a very convenient to use package, provided with a zipper that allows resealing. The packaging made of foil prevents the penetration of moisture into the interior of the packaging, thanks to which the fertilizer enclosed in it does not lump together. The offer includes 1 kg, 3 kg and 25 kg packages.
Potassium regulates the processes of water uptake and evaporation in plants, thanks to which plants are more resistant to water shortage in winter. Phosphorus stimulates plants to produce a healthy and well-developed root system, which translates into better resistance to adverse environmental factors. Additionally, phosphorus and potassium strengthen the grasses resistance to diseases. Properly nourished grasses have a better condition in spring, which means that after the snow recedes, the risk of falling ill with a fungal disease – snow mold – is reduced.
Most importantly – Hortifoska autumn fertilizer for lawns does not contain nitrogen, so it does not stimulate plants to grow intensively and to create young shoots, sensitive to low temperatures. The balanced composition helps the plants to enter the winter dormancy, and also increases the winter hardiness and frost resistance of plants.
The fertilizer can be used from mid-July in order to better prepare plants for winter dormancy. However, the best time to start fertilizing with fall fertilizer is August. Then the plants will have time to make optimal use of the nutrients supplied before the onset of winter. In recent years, changes in our climate have been observed, consisting in a significant extension of the summer-autumn period, which translates into an extension of the vegetation period of plants. Therefore, fertilization with autumn fertilizer can be repeated after 2 months. One should only remember not to delay fertilization until frost, because plants are unable to absorb nutrients from the frozen ground. Fall fertilizer for conifers can also be used in spring, but then it is worth supplementing it with nitrogen fertilizer.
In the recommended period, use 20 g (half a handful) * of fertilizer for every 1 m² of lawn area.
Sprinkle the fertilizer evenly over the lawn, and after use, water it abundantly. The fertilizer in contact with moist soil will gradually dissolve.
* One handful is about 30-40 g of fertilizer.
* The product has a new packaging design.
