A wonderful source of phosphorous 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.

DTE™ Bone Meal 3-15-0 is one of the indispensable soil amendments all organic gardeners should have on hand.

Bulbs: Add 1 tbsp. per hole for average size bulbs, more for larger varieties. Mix thoroughly into soil and water in well.
Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds: To prepare new gardens, apply 2.5-5 lbs per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3″ of soil. For new transplants, add 1-2 tbsp per hole, mix into soil and water in well. To feed established plants, side dress 2-4 oz once each month during the growing season to promote fruiting and flowering.
Containers: 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.
Trees, Shrubs & Vines: Spread 1 lb per 2″ of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well. For new trees, prepare transplant hole and mix 1-2 cups with the backfill soil. Use the amended soil to fill in around the new tree and water in well.
Row Crops/Acreage: Apply 500-1,000 lbs per acre depending on specific crop needs or required pounds of actual nutrients per acre.
