Henderson Fertilizing Celebrates National Garden Month!

April 20, 2016

Did you know April is National Garden Month?

That’s right! The National Garden Bureau worked with 23 co-sponsoring national horticultural organizations to legislate National Garden Week. Former President Reagan signed the Proclamation April 18, 1986. National Garden Week was first celebrated April 12 to 18, 1987. And, in 2002, the National Gardening Association resolved to extend the celebration to encompass the entire month of April. National Garden Month was celebrated for the first time in 2003.

Having a healthy lawn is dependent on many factors These include the elements Mother Nature provides such as adequate water for cell enlargement and evaporative cooling, sunlight and carbon dioxide for energy production, and of course oxygen for respiration.

Lawn growth also depends on nutrients and essential elements absorbed by roots through the soil. When natural soil processes do not provide needed supplies of these, fertilizer should be applied to maintain turf grass growth. The purpose of fertilizing a lawn is to add these necessary nutrients in the required amounts and at the proper times to achieve a healthy, and green, lawn. This is why Henderson Fertilizing applies fertilizer with the proper amount of nutrients your lawn needs during the specific times of the year via organic based products applied by only certified PA applicators.
