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.
When to use
Apply every 4-6 weeks throughout the growing season from February until the end of October. For best results the granules should be worked into the soil. During dry weather, water before and after application.
Handy application tip
One handful of Bone Meal is about 35g (1¼ oz).
To be used only where there is a recognised need. Do not exceed the appropriate application rate. Increasing the dosage may
result in damage to your plants. Store in a dry, frost free place away from children, pets and foodstuff. Wash hands and exposed skin after use. Gloves are recommended when handling this product. Land where the product has been applied should not be used for grazing or cropping for feedingstuffs within the following periods: (a) two months in the case of pigs; and (b) three
weeks in the case of other farmed animals. Children and pets can continue to use treated areas immediately after application. Some dogs may be attracted to eat the product, to avoid this we recommend mixing well with the soil.
