Our top 5 fertilisers
9th December 2013 Lawn UK

When it comes to fertilisers, there are many to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a general purpose garden fertiliser, or something to green up your perfect lawn, we’ve got everything covered. Fertilisers are a relatively cost efficient way of maximising plant potential around the garden.

Choosing an appropriate fertiliser can be difficult, there are so many too choose from.

We’ve compiled this list of our favourite five fertilisers.

1. Growmore – from £3.98

Growmore fertiliser is a fantastic all-rounder. Great for lawns, flowers and vegetables, Growmore can be used in many areas. Growmore is the chosen fertiliser to use when establishing a new lawn. It should be forked well into the soil a few days prior to sowing. The suggested rate is 140g/m2.

Growmore is available is several sizes: 1.25kg, 2.5kg, 5kg, 10kg and 20kg.

2. Green Up – £11.99 for 3kg

This one is a dedicated lawn fertiliser. Supplied in 3kg boxes, each pack will treat 120m2. The fertiliser is in granular form, and can be used throughout the year, approximately every 6 weeks. The high Nitrogen formula promotes good lawn growth, helping to create a thick, dense layer of turf.

Only available in 3kg boxes, made by Vitax.

3. Blood, Fish & Bone – from £6.98

Another mixed-use fertiliser. Blood Fish & Bone is made up of traditional, natural ingredients. The fertiliser is an organic alternative to others such as Growmore. Blood, Fish & Bone provides three main nutrients; Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potash. This fertiliser can be used for lawns as a preseeding fertiliser.

Blood, Fish & Bone can be purchased in several different sizes: 2.5kg, 5kg and 10kg.

4. Lawn Sand – from £7.99

Lawn Sand is a treatment and tonic for lawns. Designed to control moss, Lawn Sand should be applied between April and September. It acts as a tonic, which encourages good green lawn growth. 7-10 days after application, any dead moss should be raked out.

Lawn Sand is available in 4kg and 20kg packs.

5. Vitax Q4 – £17.40 for 4.5kg

You might say we’ve saved the best until last. Q4 is an outstanding all-purpose fertiliser produced by industry leaders Vitax. Firstly, Q4 is fantastic for new lawns. Similar to other preseeding fertilisers, Q4 should be applied at 140g/m2. But this fantastic fertiliser isn’t just good for lawns. It will tempt your tomatoes into ripening, and reach out to your roses, encouraging abundant flowering.
