Organic Fertilizers


Organic fertilizers have a different effect on the soil than chemical fertilizers do. They have a wide range of nutrients and micro nutrients that are needed to nurture the life of the soil. Indeed, soil that has been repeatedly treated with chemical fertilizers is often referred to as "dead soil". Organic fertilizers go beyond natural ingredients. They are certified free of pesticide and herbicide residue. Many seemingly organic amendments and fertilizers come from fields sprayed with toxic chemicals. The most recognizable of these may be Cottonseed Meal. This nice natural product is one of the most heavily sprayed crops in agriculture and the residue that is left behind in the meal can be significant. We offer three types of organic  fertilizers, dry granulated, liquid, and spikes from four great companies, McGeary's, MetaNaturals, California Organics, and Jobe's. All four have met the highest criteria for organic standards and their products are listed with the Organic Materials Review Institute as approved for organic production. 

The soil is your most important asset in the garden. Even the healthiest plants cannot survive if the soil is unbalanced. If you are wondering what the fertility of your soil is, you might want to invest in a soil test. We offer a reasonably priced kit that allows you to receive professional results and recommendations.

  McGeary Organic Fertilizer

McGeary Organic Fertilizers


Dry formula organic fertilizers are the perfect way to get your potted plants off to a great start. Mix with peat moss and perlite to make your own perfect potting soil. Or, top dress for a mid-season boost. We usually do both. The initial boon to the plant of having the fertilizer mixed into the potting soil should not be underestimated. After a couple of months a tablespoon or so applied to the top of the soil keeps the plant healthy. We have a long growing season, so we may top dress two or three times like this.

McGeary Organic Fertilizers are scientifically formulated from natural ingredients. They contain no manure and there are no foul odors so often associated with natural fertilizers. And, because nutrients are released as the plants need them, there is no danger of burning or killing your plants due to an overdose of chemicals. To gauge how much you might need for your garden, figure 1/2 lb to 1 lb per 10 square feet. A container would need only tablespoons. High quality, economical, and easy to use make McGeary's Organic Fertilizers the number one choice for Organic growers. We offer two blends in three sizes.

McGeary's 5-3-4 General Purpose Yard and Garden Fertilizer is  perfect for Herbs, Flowers, Vegetables and Lawns. An extensive listing of rate applications is included with every container. For example, for lawns, either with cool or warm season grass the application would be 40 lbs per 1000 square feet each year, 20 lbs in spring after the flush of rapid growth slows, and 20 lbs again in mid to late fall.

This blend comes in 3lb bags, for $7.95, 7 lbs jugs for $14.95 and 50 lb bags for 39.95.

See below to order.


McGeary's 2-3-4 Vegetable, Fruit and Berry Fertilizer is tops for getting heavy fruiting plants through the season. An extensive listing of rate applications is included with every container. Be sure to use this with our Organic Strawberry Plants for maximum fruit production. The addition of Rock Phosphate and a slight reduction of nitrogen helps the plant to concentrate its energy on the fruit of the plant rather than on the leaves.

This blend comes in 3lb bags, for $7.95 and in 7 lb jugs for $14.95.
