What is potash?
Different plants need different nutrients to give you the maximum crop. Fertilizers can be broken down into 4 main elements Nitrogen-N, Phosphorus-P and Potassium-K. In general these 3 nutrients are responsible for different aspects of the plants growth. Here’s the basic breakdown:
Nitrogen – Stem and foliage growth.
Phosphorus – Root growth and flower and seed production.
Potassium / potash – Disease resistance and setting fruit.
All plants need these 3 elements but you can tailor the quantities to suit what you’re growing. For example a high nitrogen fertilizer is perfect for plants with lots of leafy growth like cabbage or chard. Tomatoes need a fertilizer high in potassium as this is the element responsible for setting fruit.
