Bone Meal Organic Slow Release Nutrient Rich Fertiliser.
In our opinion, the best thing about bone meal is it’s environmentally friendly, organic and chock full of nutrients. It mainly supplies phosphorus, one of the three primary plant nutrients, but also calcium and nitrogen. Using it in your garden is simple and very safe.
Bone meal is an exceptional top dressing for established plants and when planting out in pots and containers. Organic bone meal is often used for establishing lawns since it helps young plants mature quickly by developing a denser root structure. Overall, it’s one of the products that most people should keep on hand for garden use.
Bone meal is also useful for balancing out other high nitrogen, organic soil amendments. For example, rotted manure is an excellent source of nitrogen but it tends to lack significant amounts of phosphorus. By mixing bone meal in with rotted manure, you have a well balanced organic fertiliser.
When planting, mix the fertiliser in with the backfill soil. A good rule of thumb is to apply 30 grams per 2 square feet of soil and if your plant’s already in the ground, apply the bone meal on top of the soil and then use a rake or hoe over to mix in.
Although organic, the product may irritate cut or broken skin so always apply with gloves. Wash hands after use.
Store in a cool, dry place and keep out of reach of children and pets. If used in an area close to livestock such as cattle, deer, sheep and goats ensure the treated area is secure to prevent access.
