An Environmentally-Friendly Choice That Nurtures the Soil and Protects the Good Bugs
If your plants are looking a little sad and droopy, they might need a nutrient boost. Organic fertilizer is like a multivitamin for the plant world, providing a steady stream of nutrients when the plants need them most and improving the structure of your soil in the process. It's a win-win for your garden!
There are many types of fertilizer, both organic and synthetic, compost, and other products that can help support your yard and garden, but how do you know what you really need? At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, our garden center is staffed by the friendliest, most knowledgeable outdoorsy folks on the planet, and they're ready to answer your questions. Tell us about your garden: What type of plants do you have? Are they in the sun or the shade? If they're unwell, what are their symptoms? Based on your answers, we can help you identify what your plants really need. If that's organic fertilizer, we'll help you pick it out and teach you how to apply it.
Many people turn to us for our drought-tolerant landscaping and healthy Texas native perennials, and they may be surprised to realize our garden center is the premier gardening destination in Frisco, Texas. Our unique property features a stream, a barn, and centuries-old cottonwood trees. Even if you don't need any organic fertilizer, you'll enjoy spending the day here.

I needed a tree replaced and I shopped around at the other local tree farms. The staff here seemed much more helpful and they were able to help me with the tree I needed for a fair price. It’s also a nice place just to walk around and browse.
Stopped there with almost zero knowledge on the shrubs, left with the knowledge of expert :-). Elizabeth answered all my questions walked me through the different selections they had in store, and helped me make my decision. I never got disappointed from this place. People like Elizabeth make it more pleasant. Keep up the good job!

Should I Use Organic Compost or Organic Fertilizer?
Glad you asked! The one you choose will depend upon the condition of your soil and plants:
- Compost: Choose organic compost when you need to improve the health of your soil and create a foundation for healthy plants, erosion control, and more.
- Fertilizer: Organic fertilizer does serve to improve soil structure, but its primary purpose in your garden is to provide a steady stream of nutrients to your plants.
Using organic fertilizer helps improve your soil over time, and it gives your plants the boost they need to thrive. As compared to synthetic fertilizer, which doesn't nurture the soil at all and can often overfeed your plants, an organic choice won't contaminate the soil or water supply and doesn't harm the good critters your garden needs, like earthworms.
At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, our knowledgeable staff is here to answer all your questions about organic fertilizer and help you make the right choice for your yard. Call us for directions, then come visit our well-stocked garden center in Frisco, Texas.
