    They got me before too. I use Dr. Earth products now. They are great, and they refuse to be sold in big box stores, which says a lot as well.

      And whats wrong with big box stores? You don’t think that a small time operation cant be just as deceptive as a larger retailer? Don’t fool yourself! In any business you’ll have people that have a passion for gardening and those that are just out to make a buck.

    Few, if any, fertilizers are Certified Organic. Under the National Organic Program (NOP), only food or fiber products can be termed certified. Inputs, such as fertilizer, cannot be “certified organic” unless they’re made entirely from certified organic food materials.

    Many people think if an input, such as fertilizer, is allowed under NOP it must be “natural” and “safe,” but that’s not true either. Some fairly toxic synthetic materials are allowed, although their use is restricted. Zinc sulfate, an industrial byproduct from steel manufacture, is not “natural,” but it can be used to grow crops. Elemental sulfur is another crop input allowed under NOP, but most of it is a byproduct of oil refining.
