Description

Life® is a true pelletized and homogenous organic all purpose fertilizer that produces remarkable results because nutrients are released quickly yet continue to feed for several months. Ultra-premium scientific formula provides optimum levels of primary essential plant nutrients, including micronutrients and multi-minerals. This is our easiest to use fertilizer and can be applied to the soil without having to be worked in. Very easy!

Infused with ProBiotic®— consisting of “Seven Champion Strains” of beneficial soil microbes and eight select strains of ecto & endo mycorrhizae—which contributes to drought tolerance, enhanced nutrient availability, and increased plant performance. The Dr. Earth® probiotics are a most complete “broad-spectrum” bio-active package designed to work synergistically with the raw organic nutrients that make up the Life® formula. This spectacular blend builds soil health, promotes disease resistance, and assists the growth for, remarkable plants every time.

  • Primary & secondary nutrients derived from: Fish bone meal, fish meal, alfalfa meal, feather meal, mined potassium sulfate, bat guano, kelp meal, soft rock phosphate, cottonseed meal, and seaweed extract.
  • Vegetables, Annuals, Perennials and Bedding Plants
    • New plantings: During bed preparation, mix in 3/4 of a cup of Dr. Earth’s Life® fertilizer for every 10 square feet of growing area (approx. 2’ x 5’), or 3 cups for every 50 feet of planting row. Till the soil to a depth of 6 to 12 inches and water well.
    • Established plants: Use 1 cup for every 20 sq. feet (approx. 4’x5’) of growing area, or 1 1/2 cups for every 50 feet of row. Work in gently and water thoroughly.
    • When to apply: Every other month year-round.
  • Potted Plants
    • New plantings: When potting plants, mix 1 heaping tablespoon of Dr. Earth’s Life® fertilizer per gallon of potting soil, or add 1/4 cup per 1/2 cubic foot (approx. 5 gallons) of potting soil. Mix soil and fertilizer thoroughly. Water well after planting.
    • Established plants: Sprinkle 1 tablespoon for every 6 inches of pot diameter, or 1/4 cup per 1/2 cubic foot (approx. 5 gallons) of soil. Water thoroughly.
    • When to apply: Every other month year-round.
  • Trees and Shrubs
    • New plantings: Before you plant, add 1 cup of Dr. Earth’s Life® fertilizer to soil that will be used to fill the tree or shrub hole. Once planting is completed, add an additional 1/2 cup and cultivate gently into the top 6 inches of planting surface and water well.
    • Established plants: Use 1 cup for every inch of trunk diameter (measured at 4” – 6” above soil line). Broadcast inside of the drip line. Water thoroughly after application.
    • When to apply: Every other month year-round.
  • Fertilizer Tea, Foliar Feeding and Deep Root Feeding
    • For a rich liquid mixture of Dr. Earth’s Life®, mix 2 pounds, or 5 cups for every 5 gallons of water.
    • Let the mixture set for 24 hours. Strain well and mulch all the solids around the root zone.
    • The liquid portion (tea) can be applied at 1 to 2 cups per plant, or 2 to 4 cups for larger plants. Use full strength to foliar feed and for deep root feeding of all plants.
