I don’t know if fertilizer is flying off the shelves yet, but I am guessing a few more people might be interested in gardening this year … you know … stocking up!
Growing your own produce is fun and eating it fresh from the garden is rewarding. Growing organically remains popular — so much so that each generation seems to think they invented it!
Regardless whether you garden flowers, veggies or manage turf — using the least amount of inputs is always best.
The two broad groups of garden products are synthetic (human-made), chemical types or organic/natural based chemicals. Both are chemicals.
For example, the chemical composition for bone meal, a natural product can range from 10-30% phosphorus, depending on the type of bones and methods used to process it. Products used as organic fertilizers are usually available separately, so you can mix up your own concoction.
