Organic Gardening – Soil Fertility

Soil fertility is very important for organic garden. Plant life needs nutrients to survive and protect themselves against disease. Organic fertilizers made from plant, animal, and mineral sources are the best alternative in keeping a garden soil thriving with the needs for plants.

Another advantage with organic fertilizers is that there is no abrupt change to the makeup of the soil that can harm the natural microbial activity that is present in it, and constantly improving the soil structure.

Building a healthy fertile soil is an ongoing process, not one that can be achieving in an immediate. When including a plan to focus on building a healthy soil composition for your organic garden from the very beginning of your gardening projects, you will have a head start on creating a sustainable garden.

The variety, freshness and superior taste of fresh local produce makes it the obvious food choice for today either in the home or when eating out. 

Soil is the one thing that is often ignored at the beginning stages of a garden. Most home gardeners start out by planting and alter the soil later. This is not a good practice if you are looking to create a flourishing organic garden. Soil should be the first step in your plan once a position has been selected. Soil is also one thing that can be amended with organic amendments to improve the soil structure, so don't let soil be the choice of your location for your garden design.

Your typical soil that is found in most yards is made-up of about 90 percent mineral residue and 10 percent organic matter. This isn't all bad, it also contain a hidden secrete, a vast population of insects and microorganisms that when feed will turn the soil into a thriving nutrient-rich paradise for plant life to thrive in.
