Can you give me any information on GreenGanic? It’s supposed to be the number-one fertilizer in New Zealand.
The Gardener’s Answer
Hi, Roy: I am not personally familiar with the GreenGanic product. All the information I have is solely based on literature as I have no experience using this fertilizer. As you mentioned, this product is made in New Zealand, it was developed in 1975, and since 2008 it has been available to gardeners in the States. GreenGanic is a liquid concentrate. This organic fertilizer has a base of liquid blood and bone meal. Blood, usually blood meal as gardeners use it, is a natural source of nitrogen that improves foliage color and encourages rapid growth. Although bone meal provides some nitrogen, it is typically used as a source of phosphorous as well as calcium. This promotes healthy roots and improves flower production. For more specific information on this product, visit www.greenganic.com. Before adding amendments to your soil, it is always a good idea to have your soil tested to know if it is lacking any elements. This can be done for a minimal fee through your county cooperative Extension Service. The Cherokee County Extension Office is located at 908 S. College in Tahlequah. The agriculture/horticulture agent(s) can be reached at (918) 456-6163.
