ABOUT BONE FLOUR:
Bone Flour is a by-product of the freezing works industry where the bone of slaughtered animals, mostly cattle, is dried and sterilised to produce a safe high value powdered plant food.
Bone Flour is a rich source of phosphate with some nitrogen and calcium it also contains trace amounts of other beneficial elements that plants need for healthy growth.
These features make bone meal the ideal supplement for bulbs and roses in particular, which flourish with the extra boost of phosphorous.
When planting bulbs in the autumn, ensure that their spring blooms will be spectacular by placing 1-2 teaspoons of bone meal under each bulb. Bone Flour can also be mixed into the 10cm of soil in the spring for other flowering plants.
Application Rate: 1-2 teaspoons of bone flour per flowering bulb mix equal amount of bone flour and soil or compost and place beneath flowering bulbs. For established plants apply 30g per square metre, mix into top 10cm of soil where possible.
Storage: Keep dry and away from animals
