Grow Organic. Save Water.
Organic fertilizers benefit plant health in many ways, especially in times of drought. Green Acres carries a wide selection of organic fertilizers from trusted brands such as E.B. Stone Organics, G&B, FoxFarm & Earth Juice.
Benefits of Going Organic Include:
- Organic fertilizers help plants use less water because they contain less salt than synthetic fertilizers.
- Organic fertilizers contain mycorrhizae fungi, which form a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with plants by attaching themselves to the roots, expanding the surface area of the root and increasing a plants ability to uptake water and nutrients from the soil.
- Organic fertilizers take time to break down and become available for plants to uptake. This is good because it feeds the beneficial microorganisms and builds the health of your soil. Healthy soil has a better structure, increasing its water-holding capacity and reducing wasteful runoff.
- Organic fertilizers also regulate plant growth, for more sustainable health over the long term. Synthetic are formulated to immediately become available to plants, which pushes a lot of rapid water-thirsty growth.
Green Acres Nursery & Supply offers a wide selection of both synthetic and organic fertilizers to suit your individual gardening needs. For a list of fertilizer products, check out our Plant Food page.
