June 1st Starts the Fertilizer Restricted Period in Seminole County

June 1st is the start to the fertilizer restricted period, which means no fertilizing with nitrogen or phosphorous in Seminole County until September 30th! Confused about what that means or how to have healthy turf throughout the summer? Join UF/IFAS Extension in Seminole County for “Fertilizing Effectively in Sandy Florida Soils” workshops offered twice a month at various locations.

Experts will teach participants about the best management practices for turf, how water quality tied to lawns and explore the right plants for the right place.

“We are inviting all homeowners, Home Owner Association (HOA) professionals and yard enthusiasts to learn the best way to maintain their property while saving money and protecting our precious natural resources,” McIntyre said. “We will offer participants turf tips and tricks, and tell them how they can comply with county regulations.”

Each registered participant will receive a FREE bag of fertilizer that they can use during the restricted period.

Workshops will be held at the following location:

University of Florida Extension Auditorium,
250 County Home Rd., Sanford FL 32773
