Beautiful plants thrive with a steady supply of nutrients and microbe-rich soil, and when pest or disease issues pop up it’s comforting to know there are effective organic solutions available. Whether you consider yourself an environmentally conscious gardener or are looking for child and pet-safe products, you can count on Espoma Organic products to help your garden grow.

Espoma fertilizers, amendments and soils are made from long-lasting, organic materials that break down slowly over time, providing steady, continuous feeding for your plants. They are naturally low in salts and contain no chemicals, fillers or sludges, so there is little risk of burning or overfeeding. They are also enhanced with mycorrhizae—naturally occurring organisms that bind to the plants’ roots and encourage stronger growth.

Many of us at Garden Crossings have used Espoma products in our own gardens for years and highly recommend them. We are proud to offer them to help our customers achieve maximum gardening success.

1 thought on “Which Espoma Organic Product is Right for You”

  1. I love Espoma products. I give all my perennials, shrubs, and trees Espoma Plant-tone each Spring, with the exception of my acid loving plants like hydrangeas and azaleas, which I give Espoma Holly-tone.

    Then 3 months later (around June) I give all my flower-blooming plants Espoma Flower-tone to help them bloom well. For continuous bloomers like Daylily Stella de Oro, Daylily Happy Returns, and Jethro Tull Coreopsis, I give a second sprinkle of Flower-tone.

    And I learned that boxwood should also be given Plant-tone and never Holly-tone.

    I always add Espoma Biotone to the planting hole when I plant a new plant. It helps it establish healthy roots. It makes a huge difference in the health of the plant.
