"to obtain the very best results we must replace simultaneously the organic and mineral portions of the soil" - Sir Albert Howard
Organic soil amendment refers to any material that may be incorporated into soil that is derived from natural sources and guarantees a minimum percentage of nitrogen (N), phosphate (P), and potassium or potash (K).
Nitrogen is necessary for abundant, leafy growth within plants. Nitrogen is generally applied at higher concentrations throughout the early stages of growth. Excessive amounts of nitrogen will promote vegetative growth at the expense of fruit or flower production. Sources of Nitrogen include Bat Guano, Blood Meal, Fish Meal or Feather Meal.
Phosphorus is essential for root growth, bud and flower growth and the proper development of fruiting crops as well as seed development. Sources of phosphorus include Rock Phosphates, Bone Meal and Seabird Guano.
Potassium, or Potash, helps produce strong sturdy plants and aids in quality fruit development.Potassium naturally increases a plants resistance to all types of stress and is vital for carbohydrate metabolism and cell growth. Sources of phosphorus include Kelp Meal or Langbeinite
