Which fertilizer for your plants?

Whether indoors or outdoors, in the ground or in pots, all plants need nutrients to perform at their best and this inevitably requires the addition of fertilizers.

So what do you need to know about fertilizers ? When should you fertilize your plants? What is the average frequency? And what type of fertilizer should be used?

La Green Touch tells you the importance of fertilizing these plants and how to go about it.

From a general point of view, all plants need, in order to flourish, light, water and nutrients necessary for the production of organic matter and therefore for their growth.

These nutrients are both chemical compounds such as nitrogen, or potassium for example, but also proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.

These elements are assimilated by plants thanks to the action of all the micro-organisms contained in the soil, in other words thanks to all the microbial activity of the soil. From then on, a real symbiosis takes place between the plant and the fungi called mycorrhizae.

A virtuous exchange, favorable to both parties, takes place, one serving the other and vice versa. True nutrient pumps, mycorrhizae play a major role in the overall health of the plant.

Well nourished, the plant develops better, produces more and is therefore much better equipped to fight diseases and other parasites on its own.

Fertilization begins after the winter rest period in early spring and continues depending on the variety and temperature until the end of October, approximately once a month. On the other hand, it should be noted that it is important to respect a period of vegetative rest in winter, a period during which you should not fertilize.

You should also use a fertilizer adapted to the needs of your plants: fertilizer green plants, flowering plants, cacti, vegetable gardens, roses….

Generally, they are found in the form of liquid fertilizer to be diluted, granules or sticks to be planted directly in the ground.
