Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Dr. Earth Premium Gold Organic Fertilizer. This is part of my 4 core item regime for producing healthy and heavy bearing plants. I have written about this before but my four core items are, GS Plant Foods Liquid Kelp Fertilizer, Garrett Juice Plus, Endo Mycorrhizae Fungal Inoculation and of course Dr. Earth Premium Gold Organic Fertilizer. You can find them all under the tag “fertility” in one place.
So given there are many fine quality organic solid fertilizers, why have I settled on Dr. Earth Premium Gold? First is that it is a balanced fertilizer, with an NPK ratio of 4-4-4 and what that means is that you are always giving your plants a good boost of all three primary nutrients.
Next is the make up, here are the ingredients: Fish meal, fish bone meal, mined potassium sulfate, soft rock phosphate, kelp meal, seaweed extract, and earthworm castings. Also contains humic acid (5%), aloe vera (2%), and yucca extract (1%), and prebiotic microbial food – soluble sugars (7%). In other words it doesn’t rely on any single source and hence you get a much more balanced source of nutrients for plants. Also note the humic acid included here, this goes beyond just fertilizer, it helps build soil and make all nutrients easier for the plants to absorb.
Of course you know that I am big on building soil as well, which is one reason I recommend a fungal inoculation in addition to fertilizers and foliar sprays. Well Dr. Earth Fertilizer builds upon that, because it contains seven strains of beneficial soil microbes plus ecto and endo mycorrhizae to build up even more soil biology.
To really dive home how well this combination works take a look at one of my wicking beds. These beds were planted with small plants about 5 weeks ago. On planting the roots were dusted with fungal inoculation, I put a small pinch of Dr. Earth Premium Gold Organic Fertilizer into the hole with them and they have been twice sprayed with a mix of Garrett Juice and Liquid Kelp. I think you will agree the vigor, growth and health are all very evident.
So give Dr. Earth Premium Gold Organic Fertilizer a shot on your garden today. FWIW if you need a large supply there is an option for twelve bags that are each 4 pounds, at $120.05 it will save you about $64.00 over buying them at $15.00 a piece. That said a 4 pound bag or perhaps two will serve most vegetable gardeners well over a season. Again I just drop a small amount into the hole when I plant and about once a season I pull back mulch, add a pinch around my plants and water it in after replacing the mulch.
When I establish a new bed I also scatter a small amount across the entire surface before adding the mulch layer. If you want to really push things into super high biological activity, sprinkle a small amount of dry molasses on the soil at that time as well. Due to shipping costs I recommend you source dry molasses locally, most garden and landscape shops will have it.
