It is OMRI listed for use in organic gardens.
How to Use:
For great results outdoors, apply in the spring after the weather warms. Because phosphorus moves slowly through the soil, it’s important to work it in well as it is needed by the roots. You can increase the effectiveness of Fish Bone Meal by mixing in other organic materials such as compost. Water it in after applying. One pound equals 4 cups.
Bulbs – Add 1 tbs. per planting hole for medium-sized bulbs and mix with the soil.
Vegetable gardens – Use 8 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. and mix into the top 3” of soil.
Transplanting from containers – For 1 gallon pot size or less, add 1 tbs. per planting hole. For holes larger than 1 gallon, add 2 tbs. per planting hole. Mix into the soil and water-in after planting.
Outdoor container gardens – Mix 1/2 cup into 1 cubic foot of potting soil.
Trees and shrubs – Use 1 pound per 2 inches of trunk diameter around the drip line of the tree once yearly. Rake it into the soil.
