The basic rule of using organic lawn fertilizer is that if you feed the soil, the soil will also feed your plants. This is how the whole thing basically works. The more organic matter and nutrients you add to your soil, the more fertile it becomes, and thus your plants get to enjoy the benefits of a healthy growing environment.
In order to grow properly, plants need substances such as potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus. In addition to these three, they also need calcium, magnesium and sulfur, iron, manganese, copper, nickel, zinc, chlorine, etc.
In case you are interested in applying organic fertilizer to your garden, here are some useful tips to help you prepare your garden for it:
- Make sure you remove any kind of weeds or mulch
- Use a garden fork to provide your soil with a mild digging
- Use gloves while fertilizing your garden

- In case your plants need special treatment, in the sense that they have pests, you should check on them at least once a week
