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. Our fertilizers have met the highest criteria for organic standards and their products are either listed with the Organic Materials Review Institute or National Organic Program. 

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.

Made in the USA, these high quality liquid fertilizers are made from fresh fish carefully processed at low temperatures (under 90°F) to maintain the integrity of naturally occurring amino acids, vitamins, hormones and enzymes. The raw material is then stored in digestion tanks to liquify the product. This method produces a product called a "hydrolysate." Drammatic® fish hydrolysates contain the natural oils and proteins of fish, which break down slowly to become available over a longer period of time. This process also eliminates much of the fishy smell sometimes associated with this type of fertilizer.

In contrast, the majority of fish fertilizers on the market today are known as "emulsions." First the fish is cooked and the oil removed for paints and cosmetics. Then the protein is removed and dried to make fish meal for livestock feeds. The remaining wastewater is condensed into a brown, thick liquid called an "emulsion."

In addition to the fish hydrolysates, Drammatic Liquid Fertilizers may also contain kelp, fulvic acid and high quality Chilean nitrate providing a well balanced quality fertilizer for gardens or lawn. Choose the 4-4-1 for flower or vegetable gardens and the 5-1-2 for a lush lawn. One 32 ounce bottle covers 3000 square feet.
