Hi friends,

Happy New Year, May 2013 be a year of blooms for you and your garden!Smile

I am keen on ornamental gardening but wish to go the organic way as far as possible. I am learning to fertilize my container garden. I have some questions before I actually start with the action.


1. Will synthetic fertilizers (like Orchid Boon) kill micro-organisms in the soil based potting mix? Once started am I stuck to using only synthetic fertilizers until I repot?

2. Can one depend entirely on organic fertilizers(always slow release like Neem cake, compost, dried dung ) for Soil/ Coco Peat based potting mix?

Please share your valuable experience, will help me and my plants a great deal!
