Why do gardeners put fertiliser on their soil?
to make the soil healthy
A lot of gardeners use horse or chicken poo, mixed into their soil, as its a great natural fertiliser.
The plant absorbs water with it's roots, which will be rooted into the soil you put fertiliser in. The minerals will be absorbed by the roots.
People put compost on their gardens because it makes richer soil.
It depends on what type of gardener ,if its one of those gardeners who don't treat there plants right can not take good care of soil. But gardeners who take good care of there plants treat there soil good.
To help it grow
they add fertility to the soil
Diluted liquid fertiliser is available to the plant root system quicker than solid fertiliser and is less likely to scorch roots or foliage in hot dry conditions.
The answer will depend on how poor or depleted the soil is and what you wish to grow there. Grass will require less fertiliser than fruit trees.

If you can regrow the plant, then you can renew the energy obtained from it. Of course it is not all gain, you have to put some energy in to prepare the soil, fertiliser, etc.
Gardeners like earthworms because earthworms fertilize the soil like in gardens.
Its from the soil. Something called NPK fertiliser
To give more nutrients to the plants.
They do not need fertiliser, but, where the soil is poor or the tree has been in the ground for a number of years fertiliser will encourage strong healthy growth.
Usually your plants will need fertilizer in the water everytime they are watered, use a weaker strength if you perform this at each watering. Answer. Fertiliser and potting soil are two different things. Potting soil contains fertiliser that is helpful to the plants wellbeing, potting soil is a mixture for planting in.
gardeners and farmers.
so the plants grow faster
Manure can be used as fertiliser, so it may be used when the soil needs more supplements
How can you be adding pollution if your being careful and only spreading the fertiliser on your crops?
Anything you put on your plants is leached into the soil and can affect the water table, spreading chemicals anywhere that water goes.
6.0 and above, the pH level effects the nutrient availability, so finding the right pH with what your soil has and doesn't have in terms of micro and macro nutrients changes what fertiliser you put on and how much.
Worms are the most commonly known animals to digest soil. However, they do excrete it, but it comes out as a type of fertiliser.
The gardeners and farmers usually turn the soil near the base of the plant, so that air and water circulation would be efficient for the roots of the plants.
it is better because it grows plants fast
Manufactured and mineral fertilizers nowadays and organic fertilizers prehistorically and historically describe the types of fertilizers for soils in China. Ash, fish, food waste and night soil number among the predominant types until 1950. Since 1950, manufactured and mineral fertilizers, especially those strong on nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium releases, predominate.
Potting soil is a balanced mixture with fertiliser for potting plants. Garden soil is variable according to your surroundings and if used as potting soil will not produce the required results.
Radishes will grow in average soil, but will do a little better in rich well drained soil. Add fertiliser when working the soil and remove rocks/stones
Soil is what gardeners grow there vegetables in, potters don't use it -- they use clay from the ground, which is not the same thing as soil.
the truth is that you cant you need animals poo or fertiliser to keep healthy soil to stay. sorry.
The numbers show the nutritional value of the fertiliser, hence what it is ideally used for. The first number is Nitrogen (N), the second number is Phosphate (P) and the third number is Potassium (also known as "potash" to gardeners) (K). Nitrogen promotes growth. Phosphate simulates healthy roots. Potassium promotes fruit and vegetable formation. The numbers show how much of each nutrient is in the fertiliser. 10 - 15 - 10 means your fertiliser has… Read More
Primarily to increase the pH of acidic soils.
to keep it clean
they do that be cause it it it like food for the plant.
hey your doing primary quiz 27 the answer is (c) fertiliser
The US spelling is fertilizer (agricultural soil fortifier). The UK spelling is fertiliser.
Lime, eggshells and oyster shells are good ways to neutralize soil pH (make an acidic soil more alkaline).
Ground limestone can be used in/as fertiliser, though it is much more effective and useful as a soil amendment to lower the pH of soil.
Well you got to use fertiliser it keeps the soil with nutrients
because the acid in the soil reacts with the air and that gives off minerals and minerals freshen the soil
to respire to make glucose for diffusion
farmers often use fertilisers, the fertiliser contains the phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium the crops need and the fertiliser just replenishes the minerals in the soil so the crop has enough minerals
They're great for the soil... They aerate the soil by creating tiny tunnels as the move. Also - they eat decaying leaves and other vegetable matter from the surface - turning it into fertiliser which is excreted again as the worm travels through the soil !
Tilling the soil helps to break up any large 'clumps' - and allows air and moisture to penetrate deep into it.
What are 5 factors that affect water application rates to plant requirements and prevention of soil problems?
Soil porosity Soil composition Drainage Size of the plant Type of plant Fertiliser application rates to the plant Seasonality
The Earthworms make the soil porous and add to its fertility, hence these help the gardners.
the more soggy it is the easier it is to put it in; pull it out put it on then i put it in, pull it out take it off put it in the bin.
Earthworms enrich the soil with their waste, providing it with much needed nutrients.
They are faster than organic fertilisers, they prevent the field laying fallow (where no crops are grown) and provide minerals to the soil.
Gardeners find that composting improves soil drainage, its ability to hold water and protects against pH level fluctuations. It is a safe, cost-saving way to enrich garden soil and fertilize lawns.
High amounts of fertiliser in the soil around the plant affects the pH, damaging root tissue. It also upsets the osmotic potential of the soil causing nutrients to move from the root to the soil and not the other way around
Gardeners like perennial plants.
