A wonderful source of phosphorus and calcium for flowering plants, trees and ornamentals, Down To Earth™ Bone Meal 3-15-0 is also recognized as the ideal organic fertilizer when planting bulbs.
As one of the three big nutrients for plants, phosphorous plays a role in both root and bloom development, which helps produce high-quality fruit and flowers. Phosphorus helps plants take to new soil by boosting root development. Strong root development means plants will grow faster and be healthier because they can absorb more water and nutrients from the soil. You will have larger carrots and potatoes, and flowers will produce bigger blossoms.
Add 1 tbsp. per hole for average size bulbs, more for larger varieties. Mix thoroughly into soil and water in well.
For new plantings, add 1-2 tbsp per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 2.5-5 lbs per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tbsp per gallon into the soil surface once each month during the growing season.
Apply 500-1,000 lbs per acre depending on specific crop needs or required pounds of actual nutrients per acre.
