What Are Burpee® Natural & Organic Plant Foods and Growing Media?

Every successful garden thrives because it has healthy soil, and proper fertilizer. We created Burpee® natural and organic premium soils, soil amendments and premium plant foods to ensure the best results for everything gardeners grow, from gorgeous roses to juicy tomatoes and fresh leafy greens. 

These all natural and organic plant foods and organic growing mixes are OMRI Listed®, which assures the suitability of products for organic gardening. Plus, Burpee® growing mixes are formulated with coconut coir, which unlike peat moss, is a sustainable and renewable soil ingredient that aerates and improves moisture retention.

Burpee® is At the Core of Great Gardens

Since 1876, gardeners have depended on Burpee to help them grow successful gardens. Only the highest-quality ingredients are used, and all our plant foods and growing media are natural and organic.  

Our line of Burpee Natural & Organic Granular Plant Foods not only will help everything you grow, it is also specially formulated to help build a more sustainable world through the utilization of recycled, renewable resources.  Burpee Natural & Organic Plant Foods is made from aerobically composted turkey litter combined with plant nutrients and soil amending ingredients in a consistent granule fertilizer. The result is a product that slowly releases nutrients as plants require them while enriching soil health.

Burpee growing media contains granular plant food that is also peat-free to conserve the planet’s important wetlands that capture carbon. Instead, our natural fertilizers include coconut coir, a byproduct of coconut harvesting, which is more sustainable than peat.

Did You Know?

Peatlands, the wetlands where peat and peat moss are, store twice as much carbon as the world’s forests. When peatlands are harvested, the process releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which accelerates climate change. There are international efforts to conserve and rebuild peatlands to combat global warming. Since we’re focused on driving a greener tomorrow, we use a more sustainable resource, coconut coir, that is a waste stream from the harvesting of coconuts.
