About this deal

Vegetable plots: If you're using a bone meal for your vegetable plot, add fertiliser and fork it into the soil before sowing any seeds. Bone meal is made up of animal bones, carcasses and other animal waste products. The animal waste is treated, then dried and finally grounded into a fine powder. It provides the compost with a rich source of prosperous, calcium and micronutrients. Phosphorous is important for root development and seed formation. Bones are another good fertilizer Bone meal is a finely ground mixture of steamed animal bones and is extremely rich in calcium and phosphorus. It’s used as an organic fertilizer for flowering plants like bulbs and roses as it helps in vibrant, lush, and plentiful growth.

Phosphorous need mycorrhiza fungi to break down the product and to help it be taken up via the roots of the plant.I’ve been using fish, blood and bone feed for over 4 years, and it’s become my “base” fertiliser, meaning I use this as a general nutrient improver around most of my plants. I then add extra fertilisers on a plant-by-plant basis if required.

This does not equate to an NPK ratio of 7:7:7 but actually converts to NPK of 7:3.8:5.8, so it is not a totally balanced fertiliser that some make it out to be. It contains more nitrogen than the other elements and no trace elements are present, which can be found in fish, blood and bone. Land where the product has been applied should not be used for grazing or cropping for feeding stuffs within the following periods:So, if I understand well growmore and blood, fish and bone are both good fertilizer. But for organic gardening, it is best to use blood, fish, and bone. Now how will growmore affect the quality of the plant? I think that is the great debate in my mind, can a fertilizer affect the quality of the end product? A. We do not recommend using this product for lawns. Choose a fertiliser that has been specifically designed for lawn use such as Aftercut ultra green Plus or SafeLawn.
