Organic Fertilizers - Fish Emulsion, Seaweed Fertilizer, Manure, Compost

A major component of a successful organic garden, is the fertilizers you use. Like everything else in the world of organic gardening, fertilizers must be composed of all natural ingredients. If you are an organic purist, or will be growing  produce for the organic marketplace, make certain that the label on any fertilizers you use state "Certified Organic".  We will focus upon home gardening.

Many home gardeners do not realize the broad range of organic products available to them. It is likely that you are already using one or more of these products.

Here are some of the most common organic fertilizers:

  • Manure -rich in a wide range of plant nutrients, it also adds to soil structure.

  • Fish Emulsion - rich in nutrients. Gardeners have used fish remains for hundreds of years, with great success.

  • Compost - a well recognized natural fertilizer and soil amendment.

  • Compost Tea - liquid runoff from the composting process. Use it to replace chemical liquid fertilizers for home gardens. Put some on your houseplants, too.

  • Cover crops -  after your gardening is done for the season, grow annual rye grass and other annual crops. Till plants, sometimes called Fodder crops,  into the soil in the spring, to replenish nitrogen and other minerals to your soil.

  • Worm Castings, or Vermicompost - worms ingest plant matter and excrete worm castings, a mineral rich soil additive.

  • Bat Guano - a rich manure that gardeners covet for great crops.

  • Epsom Salts- commonly used to  provide magnesium and sulfur to the soil. Promotes bushier growth and more flowers.

  • Molasses and Honey - in small amounts to feed microorganisms in the soil.

  • Fish Fertilizer - High in nutrients, micro-nutrients and minerals

  • Seaweed Fertilizer- packed with major and minor nutrients and amino acids, organic gardeners use this to stimulate plant growth.

Did you Know? Inexpensive, organic rabbit food  pellets is made up of nitrogen and phosphorous rich alfalfa. It also contains triaconttanol, which stimulates plant cell division and growth. You can sprinkle it around your plants as a fertilizer!
