Understanding Organic Fertilizers Natural and organic fertilizers differ from chemicals in that they feed your plants while building the soil. Organic fertilizer blends can be just as convenient and effective as blended synthetic fertilizers. You donít need to custom feed your plants organically unless itís an activity you enjoy. So while some experts will spread a little blood meal around their tomatoes at planting, and then some bonemeal just when the blossoms are about to pop, most gardeners will be satisfied to make one or two applications of general-purpose organic fertilizer throughout the garden.
For organic gardeners, creating a living soil, rich in humus and nutrients, is the key to growing great fruits and vegetables, abundant flowers, and long-lived ornamental trees and shrubs.
The overall fertility and viability of the soil, rather than the application of fertilizers as quick fixes, is at the very heart of organic gardening.
You can find everything from organic tomato and rose fertilizer mixes to organic fertilizer mixes especially created for transplants, lawns, heavy bloom production, even containers.
