Organic fertilizers differ from chemicals, in that, they feed your plants while building the soil’s structure. Soils with lots of organic material remain loose and airy, are better able to hold moisture and nutrients, foster growth of soil organisms, including earthworms and promote healthier root development. Building a healthy soil is the key to successful organic gardening.

Another advantage of organic fertilizers is that they are made from plant and animal sources, or from rock powders. These materials need to be broken down by soil microbes in order for their nutrients to be released and that takes time. Because organic fertilizer works slowly, it provides long-term nutrition and steady, rather than excessive growth.

Also, because organic fertilizer take more time to release their nutrients, you need to apply such fertilizers at least several months before starting the planting process. Ideally, organic fertilization should be performed in the fall if you plan on spring planting. More importantly, organic fertilizers only release half of their nutrient content within the first season after being applied. In the following years, the soil is continuously fed with the remaining nutrients.
