Fertilizer and Chemicals
Friendswood Garden Center caries fertilizers and chemicals for your lawn & garden. Find out below which products will work for your needs.
Vegetables are fast-growing annuals, so they do best with a fertilizer that contains all three primary nutrients. Look for fertilizers that contain timed-release nitrogen to save time and to be sure your vegetables receive a steady supply of nutrients. Interrupted water or feeding can reduce your harvest.
Flowers: Need plenty of phosphorus, so the middle number in a good flower fertilizer is at least as high as the first number (nitrogen), or maybe higher. Plants that bloom for a long time and use lots of water may need an extra feeding in during their growing season.
Roses: Need more fertilizer than many other shrubs or landscape plants to support steady growth and blooming. The best fertilizer for roses contains a unique allotment of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium to support growth and many blossoms throughout the entire growing season.
Azaleas, camellias, and rhododendrons and other shrubs that need acidic soil will appreciate a fertilizer that contains added iron, sulfur, and magnesium to maintain a deep green leaf color. Other plants that have similar needs, such as blueberries and mountain laurel, appreciate the same type of fertilizer.
We also carry many products for citrus, nut and palm trees.
Lawns: Need lots of nitrogen because they are constantly producing new green leaves.
