In a world of high-tech fertilizers and fertilizers-free seeds, many gardeners struggle to pinpoint the exact place in their garden where fertilization occurs.
But one researcher says the key is knowing the right fertilization.
“It can be the seedling or the flower, it can be just about anything,” Dr Elizabeth Cottle said.
“There are a lot of things that can affect how a garden grows, and I think the first thing that we should be aware of is where fertilizing occurs.”
Dr Cottles research has shown that plants can grow on soil that contains the wrong chemical.
“In the garden, the soil is the one that’s actually getting fertilized,” she said.
Dr Cotters research has found that plants grow on soils that contain the wrong chemicals.
“If you’ve got a lot [of different plants] growing in the same spot, the chemical profile will be very different.”
Dr. Cottes research has also found that fertilization on a plant’s roots affects how the plant grows, which can result in different plant characteristics.
“A lot of times, they’re the same thing, but it’s got a different chemical profile,” Dr Coti said.
In a country where fertilizers are so ubiquitous, Dr Cotti said some people may not even realise that they are using fertilizers.
“I would say if you’re a new gardener or someone who is new to growing vegetables, you may not realise that it’s happening,” she explained.
Dr. Carri said that most gardeners only notice fertilization at a certain point in the garden.
“When a plant is getting ready to harvest, they get all the nutrients they need to grow, and that’s when you’ll see that there’s actually a little bit of fertilization happening,” Dr Carri explained.
In Dr Caroti’s research, the average fertilization rate was about 20 per cent per plant, but she said it could vary greatly depending on the type of soil.
“You could have a soil with very high nitrogen and you would see more than a 20 per per cent fertilization, and it might be 20 per 10 per cent,” she told 7.30.
Dr Caroni said that it could take several weeks for fertilization to take effect. “
And then you could just increase the amount as you grow.”

“This is why it’s important to monitor your garden and ensure you’re not fertilizing any plants that are young, which are the ones that are actually going to take the best care of themselves,” Dr Caroline said.
The research also revealed that the most important part of a successful fertilization is a good plant, such as a tomato or cucumber.
“They need a good environment to flourish, so they need good nutrients to thrive, and they need sunlight to thrive,” Dr Camille said.
