What is the difference between our organic fertilizers and traditional fertilizers from big box stores? For one thing, our fertilizers are alive! They have beneficial microbes, bacteria and fungus in them. In our opinion, our fertilizers mimic nature and natural processes while traditional fertilizers use artificial chemicals to prop the plant up for a season. To use an analogy, traditional fertilizers give the plant a fish while our products give your plant a fish and a fishing pole. When you use our products, the fertilizers build up the soil and the plants health so eventually, the soil returns to a natural balance. Thus, you use our products less and less each year. Yes, their are some pseudo organic fertilizers on the web and in the big box stores but in our opinion, we are the real McCoy. Peace.
Mycorrhizae...... what is it? Mycorrhizae is a fungus that grows in association with the roots of a plant in a symbiotic or mildly pathogenic relationship. Mycorrhizae occurs naturally in a forrest that has been untouched by human hands. Plants benefit from Mycorrizae. The fungi multiples on plant roots and increases the surface area on the roots so they can absorb more water and nutrients. Many of the products we sell on this website have Mycorrhizae in them including Mycorrhizal Inoculant Tabs Formula, Nutri-Cast, Vermaplex and Pure Black Castings. Our fertilizers are alive! Try seeding your lawn with just seed and Pure Black Castings or just seed and Nutri-Cast. Try using our Mycorrhizal Tabs in the soil around your fruit trees or around your tomato, beet, or melons. Use our fertilizers on a special indoor plant or your favorite tree. If they could talk, they would thank you!
What does going “Organic” or going “Green” mean? In our opinion, these terms mean many different things to different people. For us, going “Organic” and going “green” mean using the most natural unprocessed products we can find (and afford) for our home and garden. We strive to get toxic chemicals out of our home, lawn, garden, water and the food we eat. So, when we shop in grocery stores, we read a lot of labels. We prefer to buy certified Organic Non-GMO food. When we cannot afford to buy Organic, we try to buy unprocessed foods (fresh produce, fresh fruit, etc.). We filter our water. We use glass instead of plastic when we can. We planted fruit trees in our yard. We have joined our neighborhood Organic Community Garden. When we shop for cleaning products for our home, we buy products free of dyes and perfumes. We try to use the basics like soap & water for cleaning. When we buy products for our pets, we try to buy Organic. We don’t use pesticides on our lawn. We seed our lawn with Certified Black Worm Castings and grass seed. We enrich our lawn, plant and garden soil with the certified Organic products sold on this website. In our opinion, these measures are good for our health, our children’s health, our pets health, our plants health, and our environment (we are not contributing to pesticide run-off in our local water system & the local bees and butterflies love to live in our yard). We are not completely “Green” or “Organic” but we work on it every day. Peace.
Think about this: NO ONE FEEDS THE FORESTS!!! However, you can find amazing biodiversity, healthy plants and trees in forests that have not been touched by human hands in a while. Why? Well, we do not profess to know all Mother Nature’s secrets but it may have to do with the top soil not being disturbed, the leaves and decaying matter not being cleared away and no harmful chemicals being used. Their are beneficial l microbes and bacteria present in the soil that promote plant growth.
At greenplantfuel.com, we give you the tools to mimic Mother Nature. Our organic fertilizers contain beneficial microbes and bacteria for the soil that promote plant health. Our fertilizers are alive!
Unlike traditional fertilizers, once you use our products for a few years, and your soil reverts back to a natural state..... you may not even need our products anymore......... think about it.....
One of the perks of having a pesticide free lawn and garden, like ours, is that you see more butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. We love to see our hummingbirds that come back day to day, year to year. If you put up a feeder for the Hummingbirds, do not be discouraged if they do not show up the first week. Once they find your feeder, they will be your friends for life! Keep cleaning your feeder each week with a brush, cloth or q-tips and restock it with the following Home Made Hummingbird Nectar:
1/4 th cup 100% pure cane sugar.
3/4 th cup filtered or distilled water.
Place ingredients in glass microwavable container. Stir.
Microwave ingredients for 1.30 minutes.
Stir ingredients until sugar granules are dissolved.
Let liquid cool completely.
Add liquid to your Hummingbird feeder.
