We are thrilled to offer the True Organic line of granular and liquid plant food blends at Pete’s this season! Unlike conventional fertilizers, True Organic products replenish the soil, helping to restore the earth for future generations keeping your own backyard biome truly organic.
So why do we love True Organic products here at Pete’s? True Organic Products is family-owned and operated (just like us!) and was founded in 2003 with two employees. Since that time, the company has grown to the largest and most sought-after manufacturer of organic fertilizer on the West Coast.
Owner and CEO Jake Evans started in the organic fertilizer business in the late 1990’s. Learning from the ground up, he used the fundamentals of agronomy and soil fertility to develop True Organic’s first pelleted and liquid fertilizers. The products we are carrying this year at Pete’s are: Granular All Purpose Plant Food, Berry Food, Herb & Leafy Greens Food, Rose and Flower Food, Seabird Guano, Blood Meal, and Prilled Sulfur. The liquids we carry are Liquid Bloom Boost, Liquid Tomato and Vegetable Food, and Liquid Lawn Food.
And how are True Organic products different from the average fertilizer? The answer is surprisingly simple. They are truly organic. These products were created solely around the idea that the company would source only premium ingredients – avoiding all chemicals, additives, or fillers – and spell them out clearly on the label so the home gardener could understand them. Without organic fertilizers, soil is being saturated with synthetic, petroleum-derived chemicals and ultimately depleted of its natural ability to sequester carbon and retain precious water. Consequentially, the fruits and vegetables we grow for our families are being robbed of their taste, nutritional value, and natural goodness. One of the many reasons this company was started was because in the early 2000s, in addition to all the synthetic-based fertilizers, a myriad of new products entering the market claimed to be “natural and organic”, but weren’t. The organics industry lacked standards and so did the products upon which our soil fertility depends. Jake Evans decided to set up True Organic Products, Inc to serve agricultural organic produce growers with the safest, easiest to use, organic fertilizer. Now, True Organic has become the worldwide leader in organic fertilizer over their 15 years in the agricultural industry.
Let’s talk about the products! First up: Granular Plant Food Blends.

You would use All Purpose Plant Food for in-ground and container plants, and apply monthly during the growing season.
Use True Organic Berry Food for abundant organic fruits on berry plants that thrive in a low pH soil, and other acid-loving plants.
