Making Your Own Organic Fertilizer

A simple recipe to give your soil and plants a little boost.

Mix and Match
Bone Meal
Fish Meal
Your Local Nursery 
will most likely 
carry all of these.
If you want to mix your own general-purpose organic fertilizer, try combining individual amendments in the amounts shown here. Just pick one ingredient from each of the three groups below. Because these amendments may vary in the amount of nutrients they contain, this method won’t give you a mixture with a precise NPK ratio. The ratio will be approximately between 1-2-1 and 4-6-3, with additional insoluble phosphorus and potash. The blend will provide a balanced supply of nutrients that will be steadily available to plants and encourage soil microorganisms to thrive.
Nitrogen (N) 
  • 2 parts blood meal
  • 3 parts fish meal
Kelp Meal
Phosphorus (P) 
  • 3 parts bonemeal
  • 6 parts rock phosphate or colloidal phosphate

Potassium (K) 
  • 1 part kelp meal                                             
  • 6 parts green sand
