Any substance added to the soil to supplement elements required in the nutrition of plants.
Material applied to plants or soil to supply plant nutrients, most commonly nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium but may include others. Organic fertilizer is natural organic material such as manure, which releases nutrients as it breaks down. Inorganic fertilizer, also called chemical fertilizer, is a mixture of one or more necessary nutrients in inorganic chemical form.

something put on the ground to make it richer so that crops grow better
Substance that adds inorganic or organic plant nutrients to soil and improves its ability to grow crops, trees, or other vegetation. See commercial inorganic fertilizer, organic fertilizer.
Any substance which provides some combination of essential elements to plants. Recommended fertilizers for African Violets are normally available as soluble powders or concentrated liquid and contain, in addition to other essential elements, approximately equal percentages of the primary elements, NPK. For standard African Violets, a good fertilizer should have an NPK of about 14-12-14. For miniatures, the primary elements should be somewhat diluted with a relatively higher percentage of phosphorus, i.e., 7-9-5. Also see Major Element, Micronutrient and Trace Element.
A substance added to the soil to improve plant growth. The most commonly used fertilizers are those containing large amounts of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus.

This is "food" for your bonsai, shrubs, and plants usually comprised of NPK: Phosphorous for the roots, Nitrogen for the foliage, and Potassium for the flowers.
A substance, such as manure or chemical mixtures, that is used to make soil more fertile.
Any natural or manufactured material added to soil to supply an essential plant nutrient.
Any substance, either natural or manufactured, used to aid plant growth by addition of nitrates and other compounds that "feed" the plant.
any organic or inorganic material of natural or synthetic origin that is added to soil to supply certain elements essential to the growth of plants.
Any organic or inorganic material, either natural or synthetic, used to supply elements (such as nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5), and potash (K2O)) essential for plant growth. If used in excess or attached to eroding soil, fertilizers can become a source of water pollution.
Any of a large number of natural or synthetic materials, including manure and nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium compounds, spread on or worked into soil to increase its fertility.

Any material put on or into the soil to improve the quality or quantity of plant growth.
A substance containing one or more recognized plant nutrients which is used primarily to promote plant growth.
a substance (such as manure or a chemical mixture) used to enrich the soil and increase plant growth
Materials such as nitrogen and phosphorus that provide nutrients for plants (USVI Conservation District, 1995); any organic or inorganic material of natural or synthetic origin that is added to a soil to supply elements essential to plant growth (USEPA, 1993).
Any material, except lime, supplying essential nutrients to plants.
substance which is added to soil, grass, plants to help grow.
a substance ( e.g., manure or a chemical mixture) applied to make soil more fertile

Materials such as nitrogen and phosphorus that provide nutrients for plants. Commercially sold fertilizers may contain other chemicals or may be in the form of processed sewage sludge.
Fertilizer is material that is added to soil to increase is fertility and output. Fertilizers include manure, compost, and chemical mixtures.
Fertilizers (British English fertilisers) are compounds given to plants to promote growth; they are usually applied either via the soil, for uptake by plant roots, or by foliar feeding, for uptake through leaves. Fertilizers can be organic (composed of organic matter, i.e. carbon based), or inorganic (containing simple, inorganic chemicals). They can be naturally-occurring compounds such as peat or mineral deposits, or manufactured through natural processes (such as composting) or chemical processes (such as the Haber process).
