When you are looking for a way that you can help your plants grow, chances are that you are turning to fertilizer. But are you using synthetic or organic fertilizer? If you have been using synthetic, you might want to rethink it. Below are four benefits that you will find when you are using organic fertilizer instead.
An Organic Fertilizer is Safe
Even though you shouldn’t drink or eat them, they are going to be safe for your pets, family, and the environment. Processing and producing a synthetic fertilizer will a lot of energy. The runoff often goes into the nearby lakes and streams, too.
It’s Simple to Apply
Spraying the fertilizer on the leaves or putting them in the ground is just as simple as non-organic, synthetic fertilizer. So, they are just as convenient and simple as the ones that aren’t as good for the environment.
An Organic Fertilizer Works Slowly
So that it is able to work, the fertilizer first has to be broken down by the soil. Therefore, the soil and the plants found in it are both getting the nutrients necessary. Therefore, not only is the plant currently getting nutrients but because the soil is becoming richer it can help with plants in the future as well.
Although synthetic fertilizers are faster, they often will overfeed plants, can damage them, and add nothing to your soil.
They Improve Your Soil
An organic fertilizer will improve the texture of the soil. This lets it hold water a lot longer and increase the fungal and bacterial activity inside the soil. That means not only is the fertilizer helping the plants, but it’s also helping your soil.
