Hortifoska produces granulated, phosphorus-potassium autumn universal fertilizer for fall fertilization. It’s ideal for perennial crops, especially winter trees, shrubs, and creepers. It is also perfect for the cultivation of vegetables and flowering annual plants, because it extends the flowering period and accelerates fruit ripening.
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 universal autumn fertilizer is packed in a very convenient to use package, provided with a string that allows for multiple closures. The foil packaging blocks moisture, preventing lumps in the enclosed fertilizer. The offer includes 1 kg and 3 kg packages.
The high potassium content accelerates the lignification of the shoots, which protects less resistant plant species from freezing. 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.
Most importantly – Hortifoska universal autumn fertilizer does not contain nitrogen, so it does not stimulate plants to grow intensively and to create young shoots, sensitive to low temperatures. Balanced composition promotes winter dormancy and enhances plant hardiness against frost.
You can use the fertilizer from mid-July to enhance plant preparation 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. So, you can repeat autumn fertilizer application 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 25 g (a handful) * of fertilizer for every 1 m2 of the area on which the plants grow.
Spread the fertilizer evenly around the plant and, if possible, mix it with the top layer of soil, 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.
