It is important to get the word out on the benefits of natural fertilizers vs chemical ones. Chemical fertilizers are primarily made from non-renewable sources, including fossil fuels. They have a negative effect on the soil structure and on beneficial soil microbes. Chemical fertilizers also have a negative impact on our water resources. Runoff affects the ph and the natural habitat of the water.
Natural fertilizers, on the other hand work symbiotically with nature and provide your garden, lawn or plant a better source of nutrients, trace minerals and vitamins. It’s time to get back to basics. There is nothing more natural to improve your soil than organic fertilizers and soil amendments. Build your plant’s root structure by increasing the biological activity in your soil. You want to add as many beneficial microbes to your soil so that the roots are absorbing as many nutrients and minerals as are available. Organic fertilizers feed soil organisms in addition to your plants, helping to build healthy soil—not destroy it You can accomplish this by introducing natural materials to your soil that will add organic matter and decompose naturally. It’s the way nature has been doing it for thousands of years. It’s up to you to make the change. It’s time to get off of chemical fertilizers!
