Fertilization For The Organic Garden: Natural-Mind

Our readers often ask us how to fertilize the garden avoiding chemicals, the answers are many. In addition to the classic organic fertilizers (humus, compost, manure), there are specific products, specially made with natural raw materials and compatible with organic farming, which can give excellent results in terms of harvest.

Presentation natural spirit , an interesting Tuscan reality specializing in products for fertilization and prevention of fungal diseases in organic farming. We had the opportunity to test two of their products, Naturalcupro and Ares 6-5-5, which we will talk about below, with great satisfaction. If you look in their online catalog you will also find other proposals.


Ares 6-5-5

Ares is a granulated fertilizer composed of a mixture of organic and mineral substances that provide complete nutrition, providing the macro and microelements necessary for vegetables. Its particularity is to activate the soil microbiologically and to guarantee a nutritional balance thanks to the different types of amino-organic nitrogen present in the preparation. It is excellent for all crops, from acidophiles to those requiring calcium and magnesium. The biological activation that it causes is particularly interesting in the case of heavily exploited soils which must be reactivated. In the garden, it is used by whisking it into the ground, at a dose of 1/2 kg per 10 square meters, while in pots, 3 grams per liter of soil is mixed every 3-4 months. You can also mix Ares with manure (1 part Ares to two parts manure).

natural cupro

It is a product designed to fight against fungal and bacterial attacks by protecting plants. The product is a blend of copper chelate with amino acids and other flavonoid-rich plant extracts, it provides excellent root defense against major fungal diseases such as Fusarium, Rhizoctonia and Phitium. In addition to prevention, Naturalcupro increases cellular metabolism by strengthening the tissues of the treated plant and strengthening it. Against powdery mildew, Naturalcupro can be mixed with colloidal sulfur and Naturalbio. It is recommended to use 20-30 grams of Naturalcupro every 10 square meters of garden, distributing it with fertigation (that is, pouring the product into the shower or pump for treatments).

Other Natural-Mind products

For the orchard we also recommend Biomicocare for the defense of foliar fungicides, Naturalcalcium and Naturalbio for fertigation.
