Medford, Ore. — When choosing fertilizers for the garden, there’s a lot to consider. OSU Master Gardeners say it is important to understand what the numbers on a fertilizer container mean.
There are three numbers on the front of each bag of fertilizer. The numbers tell the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
For more information on what each nutrient does, watch this ‘In the Garden’ segment.
