I can obtain different types of lime and fertilizer. It will be available for Local Delivery, Pickup and bulk shipping.
The best way to determine what kind of mix you may need is to do a Soil Test.
In order for a plant to grow and thrive, it needs a number of different chemical elements. The most important are:
•Carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen - Available from air and water and therefore in plentiful supply
•Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium (a.k.a. potash) - The three macronutrients and the three elements you find in most packaged fertilizers
•Sulfur, calcium, and magnesium - Secondary nutrients
•Boron, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, and zinc - Micronutrients
The most important of these (the ones that are needed in the largest quantity by a plant) are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
To make plants grow faster, what you need to do is supply the elements that the plants need in readily available forms. That is the goal of fertilizer. Most fertilizers supply just nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium because the other chemicals are needed in much lower quantities and are generally available in most soils. Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium availability is the big limit to growth.
The numbers on a bag of fertilizer tell you the percentages of available nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium found in the bag. So 10-20-20 fertilizer has 10-percent nitrogen, 20-percent phosphorous, and 20-percent potassium.
So why don't people need fertilizer to grow? Because we get everything we need from the plants we eat or from the meat of animals that ate plants. Plants are factories that do all of the work to process the basic elements of life and make them available to us
