(NC)-The days are getting a little longer which means it's time to start thinking about waking up your lawn and garden. Many of us have partially used bags of fertilizer from last year and wonder, will it still work?
 

"We always encourage homeowners to use what they have on hand before buying more," says Kristian Stephens, resident agronomist at the Canadian Fertilizer Institute. "Properly stored, it will last indefinitely, but if you share with friends and neighbours, you'll free up room in your shed or garage and help beautify your community."
 

Here are a few tips on fertilizer use this spring: 
 

Use it: Spring and fall are the best times to feed your lawn for optimal health. If you have leftover fertilizer from the previous season you can use it in the spring. If moisture got in over the winter, you may have lumping of the fertilizer, so be sure to break up any clumps before placing in the spreader.
 

Share it: Most lawns need more food, so share your leftover fertilizer with family and friends or donate it to a local community centre. It is important to use the right fertilizer on any lawn, so always encourage friends and family to read the bag first.
 

Store it: To ensure your fertilizer is in good shape year after year, always keep leftovers in the original package, sealed, and stored in a cool dry place.
