Liquid fertilizers contain the same nutrients as granular formulas, but the nutrients are dissolved in water or held in a suspension. A key point to remember when choosing a fertilizer is that granular and liquid fertilizers are equal in effectiveness when used as directed. Recommendations are generally the same for liquid type fertilizers, and can be used on a variety of plants. You can find liquid fertilizer for turf, very similar to the granular formulas commonly used. There are also many formulas for houseplants, gardens, window boxes, etc.
