How are Plan “B” ORGANICS® Fertilizers Different from Conventional Fertilizers?

High N-P-K synthetic soluble fertilizers are typically designed to feed plants directly. Although this method provides desirable plant growth, these salt based fertilizers may by-pass the living organisms in the soil, and can be toxic to them. Under certain conditions, up to 70% of some soluble synthetic fertilizers can be leached from the root zone or evaporate from the soil surface rendering them ineffective. Plan "B" ORGANICS® fertilizers and soil amendments do not leach from the root zone, with close to 100% becoming slowly available to the plants. Our organic fertilizers feed the soil and the organisms living in it. These soil organisms process, cycle and re-cycle nutrients creating a natural "slow release" which helps to build essential soil organic matter and improve the soil food web.

Will Plan “B” ORGANICS® Fertilizers Burn My Plants?

When Plan "B" ORGANICS® fertilizers and soil amendments are used at the application rate provided on the product packaging, burning will not occur. Care should be taken when mixing organic fertilizers into soil or growing medium as increased quantities will heat up due to microbial action, as they break down. Over application in some cases can be damaging to plant root systems.
