At Culver's, we often get asked what our "Secret" is to our big beautiful, blooming annuals. Our secret is...fertilizer!
Most blooming annuals thrive and look their best when fertilized. At Culver's we use a low dose of fertilizer every time we water. If you aren't able to do this, you can fertilize once a week using the recommended amount on the back of the fertilizer package. Knowing exactly what type of fertilizer to use is the key to success. If you have ever seen the 3 numbers listed on a fertilizer package, they are in order of N (nitrogen), P (phosphorus), and K (potassium). The amount of phosphorus in the fertilizer make-up is important for bloom production. It also helps with root production (which is important for a healthy plant). If your flowering plant is producing more leaves than blooms, try switching to a Bloom Boosting Fertilizer. We're always here to help, so stop in our give us a call with any questions.
