Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb", for On gardening. One of the most important elements for all plant growth is that of phosphorous. Phosphorous is always the second number in a fertilizer. Be of a bag or be of a bottle, phosphorous is the element that's going to help with roots, it's going to help with flowering, and it also may help you a little bit with some of the cold protection. Now this happens to be a bloomer type fertilizer, which is higher in the second number. That second number can be relatively high. Now I know a lot of folks say, too much phosphorous can be a problem, well maybe so. But if you're getting your plant to grow well, and you want a good root formation, you need a good source of phosphorous. This happens to be a 9-59-8. So yes, that 59 is very high in phosphorous, but the reason it is, it's a bloomer type fertilizer. If you want your plant to bloom, and it's not blooming like it has been, you may want to use a bloomer special. And bloomer specials almost always have extra phosphorous in them. Phosphorous is the middle element. Phosphorous can help you produce good roots, strong plant, and more importantly a better producing fruit and flowering plant.
