"Starter Fertilizer Fixes Everything!" This 12-12-12 is your go-to for seed/sod or general feeding, formulated specifically for DIYers.
The Yard Mastery Starter Fertilizer contains 12% nitrogen, utilizing premium nitrogen source ammonium sulfate which brings a really nice steely-blue-green color to turf and interacts well with the other elements in the overall blend.
This blend also contains 12% phosphorus, which is plenty to push roots in an existing lawn or stimulate rooting in your seed, sod, plug, or spring project.
Rounding out the macros is 12% potassium. Here we have opted for the premium formulation, sulfate of potash, known to have a lower salt index.
As with all Yard Mastery blends, we have also included a nice amount of iron at 3% and a smattering of other micronutrients including boron, copper, manganese, molybdenum, and zinc.
All-Natural Bio-Nite™ in Every Bag!
Bio-Nite is a bio-solid filler we add to every bag of Starter Fertilizer. Bio-Nite is the same thing as Milorganite, but instead of being sourced in Milwaukee, it comes from South Florida. We can tell you that it “smells like a whole lot of success!” The good news for you is that the smell tells you that the included Bio-Nite is feeding microbes in the soil every time you apply and they love it!
So, for sure, you can apply Starter Fertilizer when you seed or sod, but it’s also great for anyone just looking for “all the things”. If you have a soil test that shows that you are low on the 3 big macros, (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium), this is an excellent choice.
