Nitrogen (N) fuels new growth. All vegetables and herbs need some nitrogen. Some, like corn, need more, while others, like sweet peas, need very little.
Phosphorous (P) promotes root development, which helps strengthen plants. It also increases blooms. This is a very important nutrient, especially as plants start out.
Potassium (K) is essential to many plant functions and their overall health. It also helps plants withstand stressful weather and defend against diseases.
Calcium (Ca) improves general plant vigour and promotes growth of young roots and shoots.
Magnesium (Mg) helps regulate the uptake of other plant foods and aids in seed-making. It is also important to the dark green colour of plants.
Sulphur (S) helps foliage maintain a dark green colour while encouraging vigorous plant growth.
