Bonemeal is a slow release fertiliser produced from sterilised bonemeal. It contains two elements essential for healthy plant growth - phosphate and nitrogen.
It is the slow release of nutrients over an extended period of time which makes Bonemeal an ideal fertiliser for a wide variety of crops and plants.
- Encourages healthy root development
- Ideal for bulbs, herbaceous plants, shrubs, roses, fruit trees and strawberries
The versatility of Bonemeal means it can be used prior to sowing or planting out, used as a top dressing for established roses and border plants in spring, and around fruit trees and bushes in autumn.
Although organic, the product may irritate cut or broken skin so always apply with gloves. Wash hands after use.
Store in a cool, dry place and keep out of reach of children and pets. If used in an area close to livestock such as cattle, deer, sheep and goats ensure the treated area is secure to prevent access.
Apply from February until the end of the growing season in October. Evenly apply to soil at the rates recommended below, preferably when the soil is moist. Lightly hoe into the top surface of the soil, and in dry conditions water in.
Note: 1 gloved handful contains approximately 35g.
PRIOR TO SOWING OR PLANTING

ESTABLISHED ROSES, SHRUBS AND BORDER PLANTS
