Fertrell is the oldest producer of organic fertilizers in the United States. We are happy to be able to offer our customers their organic fertilizers and supplements for the kitchen and cottage garden.
The following is a list of the Fertrell products we offer and recommend:
- Super Plant Food 3-2-3 The Old Faithful of the Fertrell line, a general purpose fertilizer well-formulated for backyard flower and vegetable gardens, container plantings, and lawns. 3-2-3 is a time-release fertilizer, providing nutrients throughout the entire growing season, feeding both the plant and the soil microorganisms.
- Aragonite A sea calcium, exceptionally high in calcium and low in magnesium, readily available to plants. Great for tomatoes, peppers, cukes, eggplants, any of the larger fruited vegetables where a large fruit would be particularly desirable. Use on roses as well!
- Berry Mix 4-2-4 Specifically designed for berries, with added zinc, boron, and sulfur, Berry Mix encourages a higher yield, larger and tastier berries.
- Holly Care 4-6-4 Formulated to provide the high level of available phosphoric acid required by acid-loving plants. Use on blueberries along with Berry Mix 4-2-4 for the best crop of berries, and on hollies, dogwoods, gardenias, marigolds, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, azaleas, and ferns.
