Plant Nutrient Chart

Where can I find a chart that will tell me what nutrients various varieties of plants like?

Answer: Depending on what plants you are looking for, some of this information is possibly available through your local county extension office or their website.

Common Macronutrients most plants require are: calcium, nitrogen, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sulfur. Micronutrients would be: boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, and zinc. The levels required would vary with each plant and where it is planted. There are various charts that list deficiency symptoms available online, usually through an extension office.

Happy growing,

Karen
