New Organic Fertilizer

by Charlie Nardozzi


Midsummer is a good time to give your vegetables and flowers a boost of fertilizer to get them through the rest of the growing season. Foliar fertilizers are good to use at this time of year because they’re quick acting, and a new, non-smelly formulation derived exclusively from catfish promises to be popular with organic gardeners.

MultiBloom organic fertilizer -- with a nutrient analysis of 2-3-1 -- is a by-product of the commercial catfish farming industry in Mississippi. Unlike synthetic fertilizers, 40 percent of the nitrogen is readily available for plant use now, and 50 percent will be available over the next 15 weeks. Even though it’s derived from catfish, MultiBloom doesn’t have a strong fish odor. It doesn’t burn plant leaves and is soluble enough to be used in drip and overhead irrigation systems.
