How to Apply
Important Application Rate Explained:
The amount of fertilizer needed varies according to the quality of the soil. Generally speaking, for average garden soil, one cup of fertilizer should be worked into six feet of a three foot wide row prior to planting. If the soil is poor, up to twice that much might be needed. If the soil is excellent, half that much might be adequate. Keep in mind that this is the strongest organic fertilizer there has ever been. So it is possible to burn very small plants with it. It’s a good idea to let seedlings get two or three inches tall before giving them their first very light side dressing. Once they get about six inches tall, you can apply a little more generously, as you would with set outs as described below.
When setting out plants, work in the fertilizer as described above, and then stir one third cup into the root zone under each plant while setting them out. Mulch heavily before watering them in. Then feed the plants every three weeks. As the plant grows above ground, the roots spread out so the circle of fertilizer fed around the plant expands, and the amount of fertilizer fed increases as it’s covering an expanding root zone, feeding a larger and larger plant. You want to use about 1/8 cup of fertilizer per square foot when side dressing, every three weeks in your garden, and 2 rounded tablespoons per gallon of soil for potted plants every 3 months.
Use the Vegetative Abundance Blend on all types of plants to get them established and to speed vegetative green growth. Then change to using the Root Crops & Bloomers Blend on root crops, plants that bloom to make their fruit (such as tomatoes, okra, melons, fruit trees etc.), and flowering plants and shrubs to encourage blooming, fruiting, and filling out the fruit to the maximum size. Switch to the Root Crops & Bloomers Blend when those plants are about half grown.
If you follow these instructions, you will be amazed at the results!
