When it comes to plant nutrition, nothing is more important than fertilizing. But, as all good gardeners know fertilizing can either really help your garden, or it can really hurt your garden. Picking the wrong time to fertilize is one of the main causes of garden problems, so if you want to save yourself some pain, take some of this advice.
When it comes to New Jersey the summer months can get very hot very quickly. Summer is also one of the months where most inexperienced farmers typically use their fertilizer. Instead of making the biggest mistake of your life, try fertilizing in different parts of the year. I would recommend fertilizing in late May, early September, and the first week in November. These dates might seem a little close, but they are the best time to fertilize. In most cases there is no heat factor to that plays a role and you fertilize the recommended three times per year. Doing this will ensure that your lawn remains health and ready for the next summer.
