Bumper Crop Blood Fish and Bone Meal Multi-Purpose Organic Fertiliser | 1kg-25kg

£3.49£21.89

Bumper Crop Fish Blood and Bone meal is a slow release fertilizer. Blood fish and bone meal will not only strengthen garden plants, lawns, fruits and vegetables, it also improves the soil, the life of the bacteria in the soil and beneficial fungi such as mycorrhyza and micro bacteria. Blood bone and fish meal cannot be taken up by the plants unless transformed (mineralisation) by bacteria from its organic state into an inorganic one. Mineralisation happens only when the conditions in the soil are right. It depends very much on the temperature of the soil, the water content, the pH, the amount of organic material, the time of application and the carbon in the soil. It is important to use the fertilizer when the plant demands it. Each soil has also a saturation level of nutrients it can absorb: when there is too much fertilizer in the ground the plants will not use it and the precious fertilizer will run off or leach. Soil bacteria use some of the fertilizers, in particular fish meal, for their own growth and well being which encourages early season microbial life.

It is best to use a lawn spreader when applying, making sure the mixture is evenly and thinly distributed. Any spillage will burn the lawn and you have to brush, spread and thoroughly water-in the overdose. Blood and fish will dilute, bone meal will remain on the surface and disappear in any cracks or is taken up by worms.
