Description

Derived from leguminous perennial alfalfa plant used for pasture and cover crop. Primary benefit of this pleasant smelling meal is increasing organic matter, although it is also a valuable plant-derived fertilizer. Also contains trace minerals and triaconatol.

  • Excellent addition to the compost pile for nitrogen content and absorbency.
  • Roses respond especially well to alfalfa meal. For new plantings of roses, mix 0.5 cup per plant into the soil.
  • For existing plants, mix 0.5-1 cup of alfalfa meal to a depth of 4"-6" around each rose bush.
  • For vegetables and flower beds, work in at 2-5 lbs/100 sq ft.
  • 2.5% N, 0.5% P, 2.5%K
