The N-P-K ratio in fertilizer refers to Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K), which are the three main nutritional building blocks that all plants need. Nitrogen promotes healthy green, vegetative growth. It helps plants use sunlight to turn water and carbon dioxide into sugars, which creates food. Too much Nitrogen will produce lush foliage but few or no flowers. Too little results in yellow leaves, no new growth, and small pale blooms.

Phosphorus creates strong roots and abundant blooms. Too little Phosphorus will result in dull foliage and leaves that drop off as well as weak bloom stems and buds that don’t open.

Potassium (also known as potash) allows for vigorous growth and helps the overall plant perform well. It acts like an immune system booster, which encourages continued good health during any times of stress, including drought and cold weather as well as damage by insects or disease. It your roses do not receive enough Potassium, they’ll have weak flower stems, under-developed buds, and leaves with yellow edges that may also turn brown.
