You can use Granular fertilizers to provide the usual nutrients to a plant; these fertilizers work as a supplement to manure and compost. When using these fertilizers, you normally apply them to the soil in the spring season, or a little before planting the crops.

To use these fertilizers, sprinkle it on the soil as instructed and carefully ensure it does not touch the foliage. Next, rake the fertilizer right into your soil. Usually, you should spread one or two handfuls of granular fertilizer per every yard of soil.
