Anybody remember this is an ORGANIC gardening site?
Thanks for your helpfulness, oceanblue, but the liquid fertilizers organic gardeners use are never BLUE.
Let's go back to Bioform Dry, Sustane, Texas Tee, Maestro Gro, Ladybug, Gardenville, Bluebonnet, Nature's Way, Enviromate and any of the other many fine organic fertilizers out there. Nothing
that is BLUE OR BRIGHT GREEN OR YELLOW applies here (except sulfur, of course) as a good fertilizer.
The problem with synthetic fertilizers? They are not well rounded, provide a narrow range of chemical nutrition, wash out of the soil and into the water system, and must be replaced on a regular basis - like once a month. Organic fertilizers are only applied 2 to 4 times per year and they IMPROVE THE SOIL, making it easier for the plants to utilize the nutrients they provide. Would your body get by well on vitamin supplements and nutrition bars forever? NO! And neither do plants with synthetic fertilzers.
