MINNEAPOLIS - Organic fertilizers are derived from animal or vegetable matter. Processed organic fertilizers include compost, blood meal, bone meal, humic acid, amino acids, and seaweed extracts.  Other examples are natural enzyme-digested proteins, fish meal, and feather meal. 

Bobby and I look at the amazing varieties of organic fertilizers available now in the market-place.  They are all derived differently but they all have the same great qualities such as they take a long time to break down and last for a long time, and you can't put too much down.  Because they are natural that makes a huge difference.  The numbers on them are naturally lower so you might buy a 5,5,5 but that would compare to a 10,10,10 non-organic fertilizer. 

Check the varieties out the next time you are in your favorite garden center.
