Description: Plants, like all other living things, need food for their growth and development. Plants require 16 essential elements including carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. The remaining 13 essential elements are supplied either from soil minerals and soil organic matter or by organic or inorganic fertilizers. For plants to utilize these nutrients efficiently, light, heat, and water must also be supplied. The proper amount and placement of nutrients is important for plants to grow, develop and complete their life cycle.
Mark Occhionero, a 1995 Xavier University graduate and Cleveland native, started Top Garden products in January 2011 to promote a greener and healthier alternative to chemical based nutrients.
