People that are new to natural gardening frequently assume that organic garden plant food is just an additional kind of plant food in a bag. That is most certainly not the case, there is more that goes into organic gardening than what you feed your plants. We will discuss the three main ways you can deliver fertilizer to your garden soil, the benefits and draw backs of each so you are better informed on what to use.
There are many types of fertilizers you can use in your garden. Not just the NKP ratio but also what makes us the material in the fertilizer. The NKP ratio, or Nitrogen to Phosphorus to Kalium (latin for Potassium) will dictate the ratio of one to the other and the concentration of each in a given quantity of fertilizer. A 10-10-10 is a fairly common mix and as it states has an equal mix of each at a concentration. In this case you would need 10 pounds of fertilizer to add 1 pound of each nutrient to your soil. When the lix is say 10-5-5, you then have twice as much nitrogen as phosphorus or potassium and 10 pounds of fertilizer would add 1 pound of nitrogen but only 1/2 a pound of the others to the soil.Read More about What Kind Of Fertilizer is Best For Organic Gardening?
