Eleanor's VF-11 Plant Food was developed by a renowned German botanist & chemist, who spent years perfecting the
formula that we bottle today. He understood the biological and chemical mechanisms, by which, organisms absorb all vital
nutrients. With this understanding, he was able to formulate a ground breaking plant food that, to this day, is unrivaled.
By providing key elements for facilitated absorption, while simultaneously, minimizing ion antagonism, Eleanor's VF-11
works in concert with nature.
All of our products utilize this formula; sustainable growth. Our mission is to return our soil back to its roots.
Other plant foods and fertilizers, organic or not, have high concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. They
saturate and overwhelm the soil with these elements, hoping some will be absorbed by the housed plants. This oversupply
of NPK results in two detrimental outcomes:
1. Large quantities of these elements leech into our groundwater polluting our water system.
2. Buildup of these elements in the soil becomes toxic and leaves the soil inhospitable for plant life over
time, unless major soil amendments are made.
VF-11 is uniquely formulated to assist plants in maximizing absorption of the nutrients required for healthy, long-term
By combining precise amounts of ions that facilitate uptake, and limiting interfering ions, Eleanor's VF-11
does NOT need to oversaturate the soil with nitrogen, phosphorous or potassium. This leaves the soil pH balanced and
capable of supporting plant life for generations.
50% of pollution in our water system comes from urban runoff?
What you use in your yard matters. We all contribute to pollution everyday. Do what you can to limit your footprint on
our water source.
Plants actually have a greater rate of uptake of specific ions (nutrients) from more dilute solutions?
More is not better. Understanding how plants absorb and utilize nutrients allows Eleanor's VF-11 to work in concert with
nature, not against it.
Organic plant foods are typically high in NPK?
Just because something is labeled organic does NOT mean it is good for the environment. Organic products may be derived
from natural sources, but when nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium are applied in high concentrations they leech into
our water system and accumulate in the soil.
What is the difference between the nutrients organic products supply versus VF-11's nutrients?
Plants can only uptake certain forms of nutrients. For example nitrogen is absorbed as either NO
- or NH
+. However, all plants prefer to uptake NO
-, and will only absorb NH
+ when NO
- is not present. VF-11 supplies nitrogen in NO
- form, thus it can be absorbed immediately. Organic products supply nitrogen from sources, such as bat guano.
This means the nitrogen is not yet usable by the plant. The bat guano has to be broken down to eventually become a usable
form; typically NO
-, which is the exact same form VF-11 supplies immediately.
