Fertilizing Veggies: Fertilizer Options for Your Vegetable Garden

»Posted by on Jul 16, 2020 in Tree Service | 0 comments

While it is important to provide enough sunlight and adequate water to your vegetable garden, it is of equal importance to provide the needed nutrients by putting some fertilizers to have the best quality produce. If you want to start a garden with no experience, we recommend you to hire a reputable plant service or a tree company to start your garden with an expert touch. But if you already have a garden in your lawn and/or backyard, make sure that it is filled with nutrients that the plants need. 

When it comes to fertilizers, there are several options to choose from, and having a soil test is the most effective way to identify the kind of fertilizer your soil needs. Two of the most common fertilizers that are recommended by the experts are phosphorus and nitrogen, although some soil and plants may need other nutrients than these two.  

The Types of Fertilizer for Your Veggie Garden  

Your plants are typically made of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen, and they all absorb these from natural elements like soil, water, air, and sun. However, having a fertile soil is something different as a fertile soil needs to have the fourteen micro and macronutrients for the plants.  

As mentioned, a soil test can help you determine which are the nutrients are lacking and are needed by the plants to make an effective garden fertilizer.  

How to Choose the Fertilizer for Your Veggie Garden 

Your fertilizers can be organic or inorganic. Organic fertilizers may not contain chemicals, but they are very slow to be absorbed by the plants. The inorganic fertilizers, on the other hand, may contain some artificial ingredients but they are easily and quickly absorbed by the plants, leading to faster growth and more yields. 

When you opt for inorganic fertilizers, you would notice the different label available on the packaging of these fertilizers. This is referred to as the NPK ratio. You may see numbers that represent the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium present in the fertilizer. A veggie garden would need a balanced ratio of these nutrients (10-10-10), although there are also a veggie gardens that need more nitrogen and less of the other nutrients like leafy green veggies. There are also plants that may need more potassium and lesser of other nutrients.  

While you may hear other people say that inorganic fertilizers harm the environment, this is not true. The harm that is caused is probably on the production processes of these fertilizers. The nutrients that can be found in them are already proven and tested so there is nothing to worry about. If you want to have a faster effect and fast absorption of the nutrients that are in the fertilizer, opt for the inorganic. However, if you want to have a fertilizer that is organic and is slowly absorbed, you can try organic fertilizer.  

When it comes to providing the right amount of nutrients to your veggie garden, it is important to give it good fertilizer and not just rely on what the water and sun can provide to it. In this way, the growth of plants and number of production are ensured.
