Company History

Sturgeon Valley Fertilizers St. Albert location was built in 1976. The facility consisted of a small office, fertilizer storage, blending facility and shop. Over time our customer base grew to a point where we needed to expand the business. Because of this increase, other buildings and structures have been added to the original plant site. Examples of these would be our bag fertilizer shed, phase three chemical warehouse and fertilizer tower.

In 1986 the need for a second plant site was evident. The northern trade area had grown to a point where it was now feasible to open a second facility, hence the Legal location was born. At this time Sherritt Fertilizers was scaling down their fertilizer packaging division. We saw this as an opportunity and purchased some of the old bagging equipment from Sherritt. This was a huge venture for a smaller privately owned company. Over the years this has grown to be a major contributor to the success of SVF in business.

Bagged Fertilizer

Lawn & Garden Smiles (24-8-15): This is a special blend for lawn and turf, containing Polymer Coated Urea. The PCU releases nitrogen slowly throughout the growing season, consequently eliminating “lawn burn”.

25-10-10: This fertilizer blend is popular for many lawns. Two applications a year will provide a well-balanced nutrient supply to keep your lawn looking healthy and lush all year long.

13-16-10: This is a good blend to enhance the productivity of your garden. It provides a generous supply of the four essential nutrients required for healthy plant development – Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K) and Sulphur (S). This blend is also used as a fall fertilizer for lawn.

19-18-19: This blend is beneficial for trees. Successive applications will result in healthier, fuller growth for both deciduous and coniferous trees.

11-52-0 and 8-38-15: These products are very helpful for newly established lawns, and lawns that are patchy or thin. 8-38-15 is also a great blend for newly planted trees. Both products contain higher levels of phosphorus, which stimulate root development, and potassium in 8-38-15, which improves cold hardiness and tolerance to heat, drought and diseases.

Fertilizer is sold in 25 kilogram bags.

Grass Seed
