Nature didn’t give us chemicals to nurture our lawns and gardens. Nature gave us some excellent stuff to keep our vegetation healthy and organic fertilizer has forever outdone itself. Fish emulsion, in particular, has been used by our ancestors for centuries. Someone somewhere had some bright idea that chemicals were the ticket to green lawns and red tomatoes, but they obviously didn’t think the idea through to the finish. Well, this is the finish and organic fertilizer a brighter idea.
The best fish by-product to use for an organic fertilizer comes from the Menhaden fish. Menhaden meaning “that which manures”. Such a great name since manure is an excellent fertilizer too. The Menhaden fish is an organic and renewable source, serving North America for centuries as an extraordinary organic fertilizer. For centuries our ancestors used the Menhaden fish to make crops grow incredible yields?way before synthetic fertilizer was a twinkle in anyone’s eye.
Fish emulsion’s prime advantage is that it provides the user instant gratification. Though other organic fertilizers are good for your lawn and garden, they are usually slow acting. Not fish emulsion. Your plants benefit immediately upon application instead of waiting for other organic fertilizers to decompose. Since fish emulsion degrades so quickly, it should be stored at room temperature so it doesn’t work its magic before its time.
