Best Vegetable Fertilizer for Vegetable Gardens

The best vegetable fertilizer for vegetable gardens provides the best nutrients. 

What’s the best vegetable fertilizer for your vegetable garden? There are a lot of fertilizers on the market today. Some age good. Some are bad. Not all can be considered the best vegetable fertilizer for an organic garden. But, before we get into the best vegetable fertilizer, there are several steps you need to take in preparing your organic garden.

How to prepare your vegetable garden

First you need to condition the soil. Many people have their own way of doing this, but this is what we suggest.Start by adding any mulch, leaf mold or compost. You want to keep the soil slightly loose. Next, make sure you also mix into the top 2 to 3 inches of soil the best vegetable fertilizer you can find. Make sure it has organic minerals. It shouldn’t have any synthetic chemicals or pesticides. And it should contain the necessary elements your vegetable plants will need (mulch or compost won’t provide this). You should also make sure the fertilizer you choose is safe for children and pets.

What goes into the best vegetable fertilizer for vegetable gardens

A premium organic vegetable fertilizer for vegetable gardens like Peggy Green’s Wonderfood®, is one of the best vegetable fertilizer formulations on the market today. It uses sucrate minerals (non burning). It is a granular, slow release fertilizer. And, it is completely safe for children and pets. None of Peggy Green’s products have synthetic chemicals or pesticides. Synthetic chemicals have cancer causing nitrates. Not something you want in your garden. Peggy Green’s products provide the best nutrients for your garden.  They will keep your vegetable plants healthy and nutritious throughout the growing season. To better understand this, you need to know the science behind a good organic vegetable fertilizer. You should also know a little bit about micronutrients (essential elements). Once you understand this, you will know what goes into the best vegetable fertilizer.

When looking for the best vegetable fertilizer, make sure it has micronutrients.

A good organic vegetable fertilizer, like Peggy Green’s Wonderfood®, contains all the necessary micronutrients. This is always best for organic vegetable gardens and a plant’s health. Peggy Green’s vegetable fertilizer will stimulate the various functions of major nutrients and enzymes. It will give your plants the vitamins they need to “jump start” these functions. And, it will ensure optimum plant growth and health. Peggy Green will keep your vegetable garden the best it can.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what you should look for in the best vegetable fertilizer, and what each essential element can do for your vegetable garden.

Calcium: Essential to plant cell wall structure. Calcium deficiency is often seen as the inability for plants to bud, and for leaves to be small and distorted. Calcium deficiency is also seen as end rot in tomatoes and peppers, as well as tip burn in carrots.

Sulfur: Necessary for all living cells. Humans and animals get sulfur from plants. Plants use sulfur to produce proteins, amino acids, enzymes and vitamins. Sulfur helps the plant fight disease, and aids in growth and seed formation.

Magnesium: Magnesium is part of the chlorophyll in all plants and essential for photosynthesis. It also helps activate many plant enzymes needed for growth.

Potassium: Helps in building protein, fruit quality and reduction of diseases.

Copper: Important to reproductive growth. Symptoms of copper deficiency include browning of leaf tips.

Iron: Essential for formation of chlorophyll. Without it, there will be yellowing in all but the veins of the leaf.

Manganese: Functions with enzyme systems involved in breakdown of carbohydrates, and nitrogen metabolism.

Zinc: Zinc is an essential component of various enzyme systems for energy production, protein synthesis, and growth regulation. Zinc deficient plants exhibit delayed maturity, and decrease in leaf size.

Organic Garden Minerals for Higher Nutrition

Organic Garden Minerals for Higher Nutrition

Putting organic garden minerals back in the soil for better plant growth, plant health, and your health. The Wonderfood® for organic gardens.

More and more evidence and continued research is showing that our soils, our food and the country is deficient in essential organic garden minerals. Over industrialization of farms and the entire U.S., including new farming techniques, and the continued use of synthetic Nitrogen and Phosphorus fertilizers in gardens and farms has led to soil depletion, nutrient deficiency, and the removal of necessary minerals from plants and the food we grow and eat.

Mineral depletion is not just a localized problem. It is a problem throughout the country.

In 1936 a U.S. Senate Report stated that our soils, food and plants were depleted of organic garden minerals, and 99% of U.S. citizens were nutrient deficient and at serious health risks. In 1997, the U.S. Department of Agriculture also confirmed that our soils were lacking in these organic garden minerals (essential micronutrients), and this has led to a greater increase in mineral deficiency and health related problems. Other studies regarding organic minerals from The Journal of the American College of Nutrition and Medicine Today, all state that the foods we grow are lacking in sufficient amount of organic garden minerals. And more recently, the President’s Cancer Panel said nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers are toxic, environmentally harmful, and may cause cancer among humans.

Today, synthetic Nitrogen and Phosphorus fertilizers are routinely used in farms, croplands, and gardens to speed up growth and productivity in plants, however, without organic garden minerals, they do very little for a plant’s health and YOUR HEALTH. Not to mention the severe environmental harm they are causing to our soils and the groundwater.

So, what can we do to prevent this, and how do we get those essential organic garden minerals in the soil to grow healthier foods?

At Peggy Green, we believe in being good stewards of the earth, and putting those essential, natural and organic garden minerals back in the soil where they can do the most good—feeding the plants, and in turn, feeding us. Peggy Green’s organic garden minerals and fertilizers produce a healthy, mineral and nutrient rich soil that stimulates microbial action and aid in the breakdown of natural organic material which greatly improves soil quality. As a result, your organic gardening will grow better, faster, and MUCH HEALTHIER.

Peggy Green. Good for plants. Good for the earth. Good for you. The WONDERFOOD® for everything you grow.

Soil Depletion, Nutrient Deficiency and Health

Soil Depletion, Nutrient Deficiency and Health

Can our soils produce healthy foods that contain the necessary minerals for healthy growth and YOUR health?

Soil depletion nutrient deficiency is a real problem. After World War II, organic farming stopped, crop rotation stopped, and the advent of artificial or synthetic fertilizers (N-P-K) containing only Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potash came about as a way to speed up growth (not health). However, Nitrogen and Phosphorus fertilizer was developed long before the mineral requirements of plants and humans were fully recognized. This is when soil depletion nutrient deficiency started. In order to grow healthy, and to grow the food you actually want to eat, plants need natural and organic essential minerals which prevent soil depletion nutrient deficiency. Just as we need minerals, plants need magnesium, manganese, calcium, iron, zinc, copper and sulfur—the kind of plant nutrients AND concentration found in Peggy Green’s Wonderfood® products for everything in your garden. It’s time to end soil depletion nutrient deficiency and grow healthy again.

Soil depletion nutrient deficiency is real. YOU CAN do something about it. YOU CAN grow everything healthier.

According to Medicine Today, depletion of minerals is accelerating. Research shows that the iron in spinach has dropped by 60 percent. Broccoli has lost 75 percent of its calcium, and carrots have lost 75 percent of their magnesium. Not only has food lost its nutritional value, but food has lost its taste!

  • Industrialized farming techniques have depleted our soils of minerals.
  • Soil depletion produces NUTRITIONALLY DEFICIENT CROPS which do not provide us with the necessary essential nutrients.
  • Crops grown in depleted soils, without minerals, are more susceptible to mold, fungus, disease, and insects.
  • Chemicals and pesticides destroy the natural organic plant nutrients and kill beneficial microorganisms in the soil (good living bacteria) that create healthy mineral complexes.
  • Plants derive their food from the soil. Whatever chemicals, synthetics and pesticides are present in the soil are also present in plants and us.
  • MINERALS ARE ESSENTIAL constituents of bones, teeth, muscle, soft tissue, blood and nerve cells.
  • Without minerals, we can’t assimilate vitamins, and are at SERIOUS HEALTH RISKS.

Peggy Green’s Wonderfood® products feed the soil which in turn feeds the plants, and grows everything healthier.

At Peggy Green, we are all about plant health and soil health. You will find all of our natural and organic mineral fertilizer and plant food products to be the finest available. We never use fillers, synthetic chemicals or pesticides. We have innovative products that avoid the use of harmful things like cancer causing nitrates from nitrogen or phosphorus.
