You can add fertilizers in tablet or stick form to both sand and gravel substrates. You can also buy special, pre-fertilized substrates just for planted aquariums.
I am not going to read thru all the response posts for your question regarding the gravels. I already know the answer. Anything that you buy for your aquarium tank, if its not marked for aquarium use and/or if its not sold in the department for aquarium, then its not good for your tank. This is a grave mistake that people tend to do, buying things from the crafts department, collecting things from outside, or in your case, buying from the garden department. I do not know why you think its cheaper to buy in the garden center... A 40lbs bag of gravels for aquariums is really cheap!
Welcome to the Aquarium Gravel & Substrates superstore! The substrate you fill the bottom of your aquarium with can actually have a significant impact on both the look and health of your fish tank water. Decorative gravels and sands provide simple floor coverage and anchors for artificial plants and other aquarium decorations. Aragonitic and live sands, however, provide additional benefits, especially in larger fish tanks. These substrates utilize beneficial bacteria to eliminate harmful toxins and organic wastes in your water, helping to keep it clean and fresh with no effort on your part!

If you're looking for a great deal, is for you. In tropical streambeds, aquatic plants grow in a special clay called Laterite. First Layer provides this all-natural planting medium for aquatic plants. It makes an ideal gravel additive for naturally planted aquariums.
