The Q&A Archives: Lawn and Tree Fertilizers

Question: what is the best nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash combination for the yard, what is the best ratio for crepe myrtles. My crepe myrles never seem to bloom like they really should. Thanks, Pam

Answer: For general, all purpose feeding you can use a 10-10-10 or a 20-20-20. To encourage blooming in your crape myrtle and other flowering shrubs, use a formula lower in nitrogen and higher in potassium such as a 10-20-20. Hope this answers your question!
