Granular organic fertilizer is an absolute necessity for planting vegetables in your raised bed garden, and there are a few options we have in our web store for you to choose from. Sustane is the brand of fertilizers that we use in our gardens and our edible plant starts, but to be totally honest the main reason why is because we can get it in large quantities locally (versus these small bags for home gardeners like you).
What makes this product unique is its use of turkey litter instead of chicken (chicken is less ethically desired because its a by product of the industrial chicken & egg factory farming system) and its slow release formula. It also contains 5% humates by volume, which is important for cation exchange capacity (your plants ability to absorb available nutrients) and your soils water holding capacity.
This products NPK balance is 464, which means its slightly higher in Phosphates than your average balanced granular fertilizer. We like this because while it is slightly more its still pretty balanced, and phosphates are key for plants to make woody stem growth, fruits and flowers.
This 5 pound bag is plenty for a new planting of a 4 x 8 foot raised bed.
