Granular Fertilizer

 
How to read fertilizer numbers (also known as NPK):  Ex 10-8-6 The first number represents the percentage of nitrogen, so in this case 10%.  The second number represents the amount of phosphorous, so in this case 8%, and the third number represents the amount of potassium, which in this example is 6%.
What do nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium do for your plants?
Nitrogen helps promote green, leafy growth, phosphorous helps promote root development, fruit, and flowers, and potassium serves to improve overall plant health by regulating growth and root development which helps with resilience to disease, drought, pests, and harsh temperatures.
