Keeping the plants, flowers, trees and shrubs in our garden in perfect health and appearance is not just a matter of giving them care that seems more essential (and we only say ‘seem’) such as watering or pruning , which seem to have the more direct impact on its development.
And it is that in the same way that our little ones need nutrients and food in addition to the hydration of the water to develop in the best conditions, the specimens in our garden will also need to enrich themselves with these extra nutrients that they cannot receive completely from mother earth. Keep reading this article to learn about the benefits of organic compost.
Why choose organic compost
Ultimately, our plants need a little boost to development that only chemical fertilizers and organic fertilizers can provide. However, from here we recommend you bet on the second option … The reasons? We leave them below:
- Organic fertilizer or compost is a 100% natural product from animals, humans, plant remains of food or other organic and natural source and therefore with 0% chemical inputs that will not harm plants.
- The fertilizer is used to give a punctual nutritional contribution to the needs of the plant at a certain time (disease, requirements of the time of year, etc.) while the fertilizer serves to improve the quality of the soil not only in the short term but also long-term.
- They reuse organic matter to allow carbon fixation in the soil , so they are not toxic at all.
- Improves water absorption capacity .
- They are generally produced at home or locally and therefore are moved from fairly close places, so they do not require too much energy expenditure for their manufacture or for their transport. However, there are some very special ones that are brought from far away places (bat guano or seabird guano, for example).
- Precisely because of its ingredients (waste) it is a very economical product .
