Fertilizer labels always display three numbers in the same order, (i.e., 10-6-4).

They represent the % by weight of three important nutrients:

Nitrogen (N) – for green, leafy growth

Phosphorus (P) – for root and bud growth

Potassium (K) – for disease and drought tolerance

Example: A bag of 10-6-4 fertilizer has 10% nitrogen, 6% phosphate, and 4% potassium.

Excess fertilizer washes into waterways and ponds causing algae blooms and killing fish, wildlife, and flora.
