What if the life-supporting power of a seed could be put into a bottle? The inventor of Bonnie’s fertilizer found a way to do just that, coming up with a unique, patented formula that has helped us produce lush, well-rooted plants in our greenhouses. Happily, the formula is available to you, too, in Bonnie Herb, Vegetable & Flower 8-4-4 Plant Food and Bonnie Herb & Vegetable Organic 3-1-1 Plant Food.
Why a Seed?
Mother Nature put into a seed all that is needed to propagate the next generation. We simply found these nutrients, extracted them, and placed the “secret” in a bottle.
- Quick results.
- Supplies eight beneficial organic compounds that enhance overall plant growth.
- Low in salts, and will not burn plants.
- Safe for use around children and pets when used as directed.
- Convenient new hose-end sprayer on our Little Green Jug.
Why It’s Different
Compared to traditional chemical fertilizers, we see a superior response in the vigor of our plants when using this unique formula containing oilseed extract, a renewable source of plant nutrition. Oilseed extract is known to contain nutritional and organic compounds that include vitamins, minerals, amino acids and proteins, enzymes, natural wetting agents, plant hormones, and carbohydrates. All are vital to plant growth.
In particular, Bonnie Plant Foods contain enzymes and other active compounds that have been shown to improve plant growth in a variety of ways, including:
– stronger roots, stems, and leaves
– increased ability to handle temperature stress
– a higher yield at harvest time
What’s more, strong, healthy plants are more disease- and insect-resistant.
