    Hey guys, I found this over on a gardening website, Organic fert NPK content. Hope it helps someone... The most common commercial organic fertilizers include blood, fish and bone meal which is a good balanced fertilizer. Fish meal is high in nitrogen and phosphorus. Seaweed is good for potassium and other trace elements. It is also worth noting that most organic fertilizers are expected to be "composted" (and ntherefore mostly decomposed) before being added to the soil. There is also a limit to the amount of "green manure" you can safely add to your soil, although nitrogen is not released until decomposition has taken place in any case. So, fancy making your own blend of organic fertilizer?
