no intention to offend anyone; i at times have used non-organic fertilisers too. but they do do harm to earthworms and soil organisms which are very important to plants.
organic fertilisers might be slow and less effective, in comparison with non-organic fertilisers, but they improve the structure of the soil -- in the long run, they are better.
when i don't have choice, i use non-organic fertilisers, but when i have the choice, i always try to avoid them -- it's not for showing i'm an organic person or what, it's just i believe they aren't really that good for my plants.
