G&B Organic Lawn Food

With so much attention being paid to organic gardening these days, it can sometimes be a bit confusing when it comes to understanding the difference between organic (or natural) fertilizers and those that are not organic (synthetic). Is there really a difference?

Organics vs Inorganics

Organic fertilizers are those that are derived from the earth or from living things. When applied to the garden, they act like a slow-release fertilizer, feeding your plants over a longer period of time.

Inorganic (synthetic) fertilizers are composed of  processed chemicals that tend to give a higher nitrogen (N), phosphorus (K) and potassium (P) reading on the package. They are absorbed more quickly by plants than organic fertilizers. Organic fertilizers, have less N-P-K, so it will work a little slower. But keep in mind, you are “feeding the soil” when using organic fertilizers… which is the best way to get nutrients to the plant. Synthetic fertilizers “feed the plant,” making the plant more prone to pests and disease.
