Q.Question about over fertilizing, works the same for organic fertilizers?
I have a small peach tree growing in a container, and recently i noticed that its leaves were droping and some get brown tips. After reading a post about brown tips in plants i came across this article about over fertilizing: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/signs-of-over-fertilization-in-houseplants.htm
so i was wondering if too much organic fertilizing would cause the same effect or is just for the synthetic ones?

A dose of fertilizer encourages a plant to make its own nutrients, whether organic or not. However, organic fertilizer is more likely to break down properly and be beneficial to the soil without leaving behind residues of salt and chemicals. It's much easier to over-fertilize with synthetic fertilizer as it tends to contain non-beneficial chemicals. If you feel you've applied too much organic fertilizer, it's easier to flush away and it's altogether healthier for the soil, the plant, and the environment.
