Many people wonder after they have planted their veggies and fruits, “Why are my plants not growing?”

We at O.G.G., believe 90% of the time answer most likely is: The Soil.

You may have heard the common saying,  “It’s all about the soil” — well, that is a pretty accurate way to sum up organic gardening from Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne. Indiana.

There is nothing like nutrient rich soil  from Organic Gurlz Gardens!

The Best outcome for your garden is Organic Gurlz Gardens!

We guarantee our raised garden beds for 5 years, with maintenance and care.

We at Organic Gurlz Gardens feed our plants mostly through a nutrient-rich soil,  composed of in house, secret blend of natural aged compost, instead of with quick-fix, synthetic fertilizers .

For some people who’ve been gardening in one area of land for a long time can tell a lot about soil quality by the color,  texture, as even the scent, but our five senses alone as humans are unable to detect the pH level in a handful of soil, or understand how much Phosphorus , Potassium or Nitrogen is in the soil at any given moment.

Minerals in the soil are essential for the plant life cycle.

We Organic Gurlz Gardens are constantly at work to supply our soil with nutrients.

To do your part in your life-giving garden you need more information than you can pick up with your eyes, hands and nose. Organic gurlz Gardens suggests making seasonal checks of your soil with a simple home soil test kit.

For the full, all out scan of your soil, (If not choosing O.G.G.,) it’s important to order a laboratory test of your home garden soil every 3 years (annually if you’re a farmer).

At Organic Gurlz Gardens, it is our practice to test cultured soil, every year in the raised garden beds this practice ensures, healthy sustainable organic plants, right in your backyard to your diet. In turn yields a bountiful harvest for your enjoyment.

The lab test gives you a wealth of detailed data on the state of your soil (Which includes pH factor and Nitrogen), with pin-point advice on the amount of amendments you need to bring it into balance. Once you have amended the soil, check again the next growing season with a home test kit to be sure you have not over-corrected or under-corrected your soil.

Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
