Single Ingredient Fertilizers
|Bat Guano 10-3-1
- Bat guano is just that – bat manure. Traditionally used as a fertilizer source by farmers and gardeners for many years.
- Bat guano is still one of the most potent natural fertilizers available today.
- An excellent general purpose fertilizer for use on plants requiring large amounts of readily available nitrogen.
- Recommended for use on everything from annual vegetables and flowers, to perennial shrubs and trees.
- Bat guano is an excellent fertilizer for container plants, and can be diluted into a very effective “tea”, or fertilizer solution.
|Blood Meal 12-0-0
- A superior source of fast-acting nitrogen that has been shown to outperform most other sources of nitrogen.
- Recommended as a nitrogen source for all plantings. It is also effective as a compost activator and as an animal repellent. (Deer, squirrels, dogs, and cats.)
- Recommended for use on all crops once a year. For nitrogen-hungry crops such as citrus, corn, and turf grasses, we advise an additional application in mid-season.
|Bone Meal (Raw and Steamed) 3-15-0
- Used by farmers and gardeners for centuries as a long-lasting source of phosphorous.
- Widely used as a bulb food and transplanting fertilizer because of its gentle feeding characteristics.
- It is best used at planting time or as a side dress during the growing season.
- Raw bone meal is a slower release fertilizer and is best used for fall planting.
- Steamed bone meal releases quicker and is best used in the spring or where faster results are desired.
|Cottonseed Meal 7-2-0
- A slow release, long-lasting fertilizer that contains all primary plant nutrients.
- An excellent general purpose fertilizer, it is recommended for use on ornamentals, lawns, and perennial gardens. It is very effective on acid-loving plants.
- Use only once a year at planting time for both new and established plants.
- Derived from a naturally occurring limestone deposit, it is an ideal amendment to use for adjusting acidic soils.
- Provides a rich source of natural magnesium and calcium, important plant nutrients.
- In acidic soil conditions, it is recommended to use dolomite lime once a year when preparing the planting beds or for top dressing an existing growing area to adjust the pH for the growing season.
- A slow release source of nitrogen and phosphorous, derived from fish meal.
- Recommended for use when establishing planting beds. Be sure to incorporate thoroughly into soil well ahead of planting because of its potentially strong odor.
- Mined from an ancient marine deposit in New Jersey, greensand is a long lasting source of potassium.
- A slow release form of potassium.
- Most effective when blended into the soil during bed preparation.
- A mined product, gypsum contains 20% calcium and 16% sulfur.
- Recommended for clay soils that compact and do not drain water. Gypsum loosens the soil allowing penetration of air and water, making the soil friable.
- Gypsum is essentially neutral and will not impact soil pH.
- A valuable source of potash.
- Harvested from cold-water beds off Nova Scotia, kelp meal is recommended as a beneficial supplement to all gardening applications.
- Use as a fertilizer supplement when preparing the planting area. Use as little as once a year for best results.
- Provides plants with a very long-lasting source of phosphorous.
- Best used when preparing new garden beds. Also suggested as a phosphorous supplement in compost piles.
