Answer: Phosphorus helps stem growth and flowering so it is not essential to turfgrass, but it is one of the major nutrients found in most fertilizer blends. Floratam thrives on nitrogen so that should be the highest number on the package. You can feed now with a 12-3-8, or 16-4-8, or similar fertilizer. In the fall you'll want to change to a more equal ratio of NPK such as a 6-6-6. Best wishes with your lawn.
