Summer Fertilizer Restrictions

Safety Harbor, Florida -- The partners of the Be Floridian fertilizer education campaign want to remind residents of Manatee and Pinellas counties and the city of Tampa that they can't apply nitrogen or phosphorous to lawn and landscape plants from June 1 to September 30. 

Garden centers throughout the community offer a variety of "summer-safe" yard products that will keep the landscape green and growing through the summer. Look for fertilizers with "0" as the first two numbers on the label (ex. 0-0-6). 

The reason for this ban is because summer rains don't water fertilizer in, they wash it away -- right into ponds, bays rivers and the Gulf. Too much fertilizer can cause algae blooms and fish kills.
