Hi guys, Joe here for Lawn Solutions Australia. Today I’m going to talk to you about potassium and its importance to your
lawn this winter. Your lawn needs a mix of nutrients to help it function at
optimum capacity. These nutrients will make your lawn more resilient for things
like drought, temperature change and disease. At certain times of the year
some nutrients can be more important than others. During autumn when temperatures deciding to decrease. There is one nutrient in particular that
needs to be readily available for your grass to absorb to help prepare it for
winter. This nutrient is potassium. Most people know about nitrogen and its
ability to provide quick green up and leaf growth. But now it is the time to
boost the health of the entire plant and this is where potassium comes in. What is
potassium? Potassium is a chemical element which was initially derived from
potash. Without it your lawn would struggle to grow, be lacking in strength
and suffer yellowing of the leaf. What does potassium do for your grass? Potassium functions within the cell of the grass and provide strength to the
whole plant. It helps internal processes including photosynthesis, respiration and
protein production; creating thicker cell wall. If you have been fertilising your
lawn with a balanced slow release granular fertiliser throughout the year,
and have done so in autumn. Then in winter, specific fertiliser will not be required
as the potassium levels in your lawn should be sufficient. If you haven’t
fertilised this season. Now is a great time to do so. A good quality slow
release fertiliser will contain all the nutrients your lawn needs. Including
potassium and will last for up to 12 weeks. For all your turf needs in
