Is organic fertilizer OK?
Hi - I have been reading a lot about how adding artificial NPK fertilizers to the soil can kill off all of the natural fungus, bacteria and micro-organisms that would normally help to fertilize plants. I garden organically and this would not be very desirable for me on principle, but also because it apparently creates a cycle where the garden needs the artificial NPK fertilizer more and more each year as all the natural fertilizers are killed off. I have bought some 'organic feed', but I noticed that it still has an NPK rating on it. Is this OK to use in an organic garden - i.e. will it preserve the natural micro-organisms? Or does it just mean that it has been created using organic methods but will still kill off the natural fertilizers like artificial NPK fertilizers? Thanks for any help - I don't understand this topic as much as I would like!
