Kinder Blend Starter Fertilizer
Use Kinder blend Starter Fertilizer (19-26-6) at time of planting at a rate of 5 lbs per 1,000 sq, ft. Fertilizer will not harm seed and starter fertilizer should always be applied when planting new seed.
Kinder blend Starter Fertilizer approximates the recommended ratio of 3-4-1 Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium for starting new seedlings. One 25 lb bag of fertilizer covers 5000 sq. feet at a rate of 1 lb. of actual nitrogen and 1 1/2 lbs. of actual phosphorus per 1,000 sq. feet. Phosphorus is important for root development of seedling plants.
Important notice: Turf fertilizer containing phosphorous is not recommended except when planting seed. In some states phosphorus is banned except for use in starter fertilizer. When phosphorous is washed into storm drains it may be transported downstream to lakes where it contributes to algae blooms.
