Fertilizers provide a blend of essential nutrients required for optimum plant growth. Whether organic, synthetic, water-soluble or granular, all fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, listed in 0-0-0 format with phosphorus always in the second position. High-phosphorus fertilizers help boost root development and increase a plant's productivity. This type of fertilizer is especially useful when starting new plants, trees and lawns.
