Why Organic Fertilizers?

Why Organic Fertilizers?

The beauty of organic fertilizers is that they feed plants slowly, which is usually a good thing. This is how nature provides nutrients after all, and we’re usually better off when emulating how plants grow in the natural world. Why do organics feed slowly? Because natural organic fertilizers are not immediately available to plants. They need to get broken down by beneficial microorganisms in the soil before the nutrients can be taken up by what you’re growing. This process takes warm weather, moisture and a healthy microbial population in your soil.

Learn more about the basics of plant nutrients on the Espoma website, and come into the store for advice about the best fertilizers for your yard and gardens.

Whether you’re growing perennials, shrubs, trees, lawns or other plants, there’s an Espoma organic fertilizer that is perfect for your plants.
