Why organic mineral fertilizer and plant food?
Minerals are the “spark plugs” of the soil which “jump start” the other nutrients and make them available to the plant. Cutting back on an organic fertilizer or plant food that doesn’t have these necessary essential elements, can end up having long term effects on the soil and your plant’s health. 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. Our products are completely safe for children and pets. And, more importantly, we create the products that you want!
Micronutrients are essential in a good organic garden.
A good organic mineral fertilizer is essential to a plant’s health, and will act like vitamins for plants. It will stimulate the various functions of major nutrients and enzymes. Peggy Green’s organic formulations give your plants the vitamins they need to “jump start” these functions, and ensure optimum growth and health. So, whether you are growing a flower garden, vegetable garden, and in pots, containers, or raised beds, a good organic mineral fertilizer will keep your organic garden the best it can be throughout the year.
Here’s what an organic mineral fertilizer can do for your 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.
