PHOENIX, AZ (March, 2016) – Planting a garden can be a rewarding experience, but the hard work that’s also involved will pay off only if there’s sufficient water for the fruits and vegetables to grow. With the drought likely to continue or to develop in many areas of the Southwestern United States this summer, BioFlora®, a division of Global Organics® Group, offers these tips for cultivating a drought resistant garden.
Growing fruits and vegetables in a water-starved environment presents extra challenges, but it is not impossible when the soil is well prepared and the gardener has made plans on how to use the resource most effectively. BioFlora is now offering a line of organic fertilizers and soil additives to small gardeners that will help improve soil no matter what the weather conditions. Used for years in the agricultural industry, these products have been proven effective in promoting plant growth.
BioFlora is a division of Global Organics® Group (GOG), an international life sciences company that develops and manufactures proprietary organic and sustainable plant nutrition products and natural ionic minerals for human and animal health. For more than 40 years GOG and its BioFlora® business have been committed to preserving the earth’s ecosystem while providing superior plant nutrient systems.
