Vegan Organic Fertilizers for Spring

  • 2 of 5

If you’re interested in simplifying the process and picking up a pre-made fertilizer blend, then I’ve listed a number of veganic products you can find online or at your local garden store below:

Warning: Most of these companies are not strictly vegan, so read the labels and if it doesn’t have a vegan organic guarantee it’s best to pass.

Lady Bug Cottonseed Meal 7-2-1 vegan organic fertilizer

Ingredients: Ground cottonseeds. No filler. Waste not, want not. This natural fertilizer is made from the waste products of cotton farming instead of throwing the nutrients out in the landfill, farmers found a way to turn their scraps into plant food. Garden Pep Cottonseed Meal is an old-fashioned fertilizer, similar to fertilizers that our grandparents used on the garden and farmland.

This product is also the perfect soil amendment for addressing soil deficiencies, and it has a multitude of other benefits as well. Among these are that it will help create an environment in the soil that will help plants survive frost and drought conditions, and because it raises the sugar levels in plants it helps prevent and treat insect and disease problems.  It is also the perfect product to use when transplanting because it will help prevent shock and will promote rapid root development.

I just use compost, compost teas and, if something really needs help, seaweed. It's good to know there are stock-free options out there to buy, though.
