Over the years, the environment becomes more and more unfavorable for crop production. Long gone are the days when vegetables and fruits grew by themselves and delighted people with large, rich in vitamins, fruits. Gas-polluted air, depletion of soil, weeds - all this from year to year makes gardeners worry about their harvest. In order not to suddenly be faced with the problem of a bad harvest one-on-one, each summer resident needs to have several types of fertilizers with him.

Fertilizers before planting

Before planting seedlings, the summer resident must make sure that his soil contains a sufficient amount of nutrients. And if something has been grown on the site for many years, then you cannot do without top dressing, because the soil is depleted more and more over the years. With the onset of warm days, complex fertilizers must be applied to the site, containing all the necessary minerals. Azofoska, nitrophoska and the like can more than provide the soil with the necessary elements. When choosing a top dressing, it is important to consider the needs of each plant on the site.

Seasonal fertilizers


Spring soil enrichment is a good help, but not all plants have enough of it for the entire season. Most need more solid care. Nitrogen is what plantings may need in early summer. Towards July, some plants become deficient in phosphorus and potassium.

Often, the lack of a particular element can be determined by the appearance of the landings. But if such signs are not observed, then fortifying compounds can be used. These include, for example, Ideal.


These substances belong to the first aid to plants. They are used in emergency cases, such as sudden frosts, when they lack copper, zinc and magnesium, too hot summer, then the plant lacks magnesium and iron or soil depletion. A small amount of micronutrient does not take up a lot of space and can help not to be left without a crop in difficult times.

Fertilizers for autumn

Autumn is a hot season for summer residents. Some plantings need to stimulate the formation of fruits so that the gardener has time to harvest before the cold weather arrives. Phosphorus and potassium have the necessary properties. The choice of fertilizer depends on the type of plant to be stimulated, but the general recommendation is to avoid nitrogen fertilization.
