- Useful Information
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.
