Dr Earth Life Fertilizer -
This all purpose fertilizer
could be called "plant food for dummies" because it's so easy to use. Apply it per the directions on the bag and water it in. You don't have to work it into the soil making it a great go-to product for gardeners who don't have a lot of time. It provides balanced food for veggies, potted plants and even trees, shrubs and annuals.
