Resources in the Common Ground Garden Shed

These resources and supplies are furnished through annual fees paid by plot holders.


In the Common Ground NRH Community Garden are several gardening supplies that are made available to all our gardeners. Container lids are marked to identify what they are along with directions on use.

What is in this can?Texas Tea 6-2-4 fertilizer is a nutrient-rich organic plant food that’s well-suited for a variety of applications, including lawns, turf, container plants, trees, bushes, shrubs, and gardens. It’s made with natural ingredients such as feather meal, alfalfa meal, organic composted chicken litter, molasses, humates, and potashThis blend is designed to promote a healthy, thick, and uniform coverage with deep, rich green colors, and it stimulates healthy root development.

The N-P-K ratio of 6-2-4 indicates that it contains 6% nitrogen (N), 2% phosphorus (P), and 4% potassium (K), which is a balanced mix for fostering robust plant growth. Nitrogen is always needed for leafy green growth. Phosphorous is what will help fruits and vegetables produce fruits in the first place. Potassium improves disease resistance.

When using Texas Tea 6-2-4 fertilizer, it’s important to follow the application instructions provided by the manufacturer to ensure the best results for your garden needs. It is a dependable choice for plants that don’t need much nitrogen or any that have delicate root systems as they are less likely to be shocked or burned by this fertilizer while still getting the nutrients needed.

Cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and beans are all common veggies that will benefit from this fertilizer. Like all fertilizers that contain nitrogen, you should apply either early in the morning or late in the evening. Fertilizing when temperatures are high is a surefire way to scald or burn your plants.

Apply the granules by scattering evenly over the soil then water afterwards. The granules will need time to dissolve and release their nutrients into the soil. Granules can be distributed into the soil using a hand rake.
