Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds: To prepare new gardens, apply 3-6 lbs per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3" of garden soil in Spring or Fall. For new transplants, add 1-2 teaspoons per hole, mix into soil and water in well.
Lawns: In Fall or Spring, spread 10-50 lbs per 1,000 square feet depending on soil analysis and water in well. Repeat annually, with rates determined by soil testing.
Outdoor Containers: For new plantings, add 1-2 tablespoons per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 0.5-1 lb per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tablespoons per gallon into the soil surface every other month during the growing season.
Trees & Shrubs: Spread 1 lb per 1" of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well. For new trees, prepare transplant hole and mix 1-2 cups with the backfill soil. Use the amended soil to fill in around the new tree and water in well.
