New Plantings: Mix in 1½ cups per 10 sq. feet of growing area, or 6 cups per 50 feet of planting row. If in containers or pots, use ½ cup per ½ cubic foot (approx. 5 gallons) of potting soil.
Established Plants: Use 1 cup per 10 sq. feet of growing area, or 3 cups for every 50 feet of row. If in containers or pots, use ¼ cup per 5 gallons of potting medium.
N-P-K (6-5-5): A balanced blend of the three major nutrients required for healthy plants. Nitrogen provides plants with the ability to produce more chlorophyll, which in turn allows plants to grow quickly. Phosphorous (P) aids in root development and increases flowering ability and bloom size. Potash or Potassium (K) guards the plant against diseases and aids in drought protection and cold tolerance. It also serves a role in improving root development and helps in the process of photosynthesis.
Calcium (6%): Essential for cell wall development and growth, enzyme activity, and metabolism.
Magnesium (1%): A part of the chlorophyll in all green plants and essential for photosynthesis.
Sulfur (2%): Essential for production of protein, enzymes and vitamins in plants.
Humic acid (3%): Improves the physical and chemical profile of the soil. It also boosts the carbon in the soil and enhances the carbon to nitrogen ratio which facilitates nitrogen uptake by plants.
Kelp (1%): Rich in micronutrients, amino acids and vitamins.
Endomychorrhizae (150 viable spores per lb.): A beneficial soil fungus that colonizes the plant root in a symbiotic relationship to assist the plant in nutrient uptake.
