As we all know, compost is a very important element to take into account when planting any tree, flower or crop, and for that reason this time we want to tell you a little about compost for a vegetable garden.
It is important to note that we can use different types of compost in a garden, but it will always help you to have very fertile soil with all the necessary nutrients for the vegetables to develop correctly and properly. Pay close attention to the types of special fertilizers for vegetables.
First of all, we have organic fertilizers, which are those made with compost, mulch, manure, among others. These types of fertilizers are of natural origin and produce humus at the same time that they release the nutrients that plants need to develop, such as sulfur, phosphorus, and nitrogen. Organic fertilizers are slower absorption, but favor any type of soil and are the best long-term option since the nutrients that are produced remain in the soil for a longer amount of time.
On the other hand, we have mineral fertilizers, which come from synthesized chemical products. Generally, these fertilizers are the most used, since they are faster released than organic fertilizers, producing results more quickly. However, unlike natural fertilizers, they are a bit more expensive and remain in the soil for a shorter time, causing the nutrients to dilute quickly.
As the last option, we have foliar fertilizers, which are applied on the leaves of the plants. This is the technique used when after using the other two types of fertilizers we have not obtained good results. Foliar fertilizers are quite useful if the soil is not very deep, since they will have a quick response.
