Fertilization, Weed & Pest Management

There are many different types of fertilizers available, and each has different uses and benefits. When fertilizing your plants, you can use either a liquid concentrate or a granular formulation. Both can be used in several different ways, depending on the plant you are trying to fertilize, the time of year it is, and your personal preferences.

Tillage and root growth (Cultivation)
Tillage, or cultivating, is the process of moving soil and turning it over with a rake or a plow. This aerates your soil, allowing air and water to get to the roots of your plants, as well as allowing weed seeds to germinate. As well as being beneficial to the health and vigor of your plants, cultivation increases root growth, which is especially helpful in a season with a long and difficult growing season. In other words, if it is a particularly dry or hot summer, cultivating your soil can provide an extra source of nutrients, which will help your plants survive the heat. The main advantage to cultivation over fertilizer is that it allows the beneficial microorganisms in your soil to flourish, releasing nutrients and breaking them down so they can be used by your plants.
