General nutrients are fertilisers that can be used throughout the growth cycle. Plants need nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and potassium (K) to grow and flower to their fullest potential. Nitrogen encourages new leaves to grow, phosphorous stimulates plant growth and development, and potassium helps with flowering and fruiting. It is possible to use just one nutrient throughout a plants life cycle, but only if you are using a high quality nutrient. Better results can be achieved by using specific grow and flower nutrients and various additives. Nutrients derived from seaweed have very little nitrogen, but are high in potassium and phosphorous.
We offer all the general nutrients you need for living soil plants, including liquid, slow release, and even organic tea kits to ensure rapid growth and flowering of plants. Please see the sub categories for more specific products. If you need liquid fertilisers, you can visit our liquid fertiliser category. We also stock slow release fertilisers and high quality organic fertilisers.
