You might think this looks like the 7-7-7 I showed you before but it doesn't. It isn't perfectly granular like that is; it is just a mix of various degrees of gritty 'powder'. It is what it says it is - ground up animal bones - mostly beef. It is then steamed at a high temperature to kill any pathogens. In the main I think of it as promoting root growth.
So, the previous feeding instructions I gave you were for everything above ground, this is for below:
|instructions on the lid so I don't forget|
I chuck a small handful in with the soil when I am planting something - especially woody plants like trees and shrubs and perennials. Also, as it says on the lid at the back end of the season I stroll all round the garden strewing it here there and everywhere to encourage root growth before the winter sets in. This time a more generous handful than the 7-7-7 feeding routine is needed.
