Here at Home Grown Gardens we promote the use of Organic fertilizers! Organic materials and fertilizers improve the soil texture, allowing it to hold water longer, and increase the bacterial and fungal activity in the soil. So, they not only assist your plants, they help the soil. Synthetic fertilizers, on the other hand, deplete the soil of its nutrients, making it unproductive. We always recommend using organic fertilizers! We offer a broad range of organic fertilizers to help make you more successful in your garden!
