Essentially, fertiliser is anything added to your garden that provides it with nutrients, whether it’s organic or not.
Unless your plants are located in a natural environment, where waste matter is returned to the soil, then you will need fertiliser to replace lost nutrients. The reasons for fertilising include:
- Treating unhealthy plants
- Replenishing nutrients used up by existing plants
- Compensating for plants that need more nutrients than their soil provides
- Boosting the overall look & health of your existing garden
