Bone Meal has very high phosphorus content plus a smaller amount of nitrogen. This balance is ideal for encouraging strong root growth. The organic nutrients in the fertiliser are gently released into the soil over an extended period of time.
HOW TO USE:
One handful of Bone Meal is about 35g (1¼ oz). You can apply Bone Meal every 4-6 weeks to sustain good soil fertility.
- Trees and Shrubs – Established plants: Apply 135g/sq. m (5oz/sq. yd) around the base. Gently fork into the soil surface without disturbing the roots. Alternatively, sprinkle the product over the soil surface, around the stem of the plant and water in well.
- Trees and Shrubs – New plantings : Apply 135g/sq. m (5oz/sq. yd) to the bottom of the planting hole and mix well with soil or compost when refilling the hole.
