How to mix

For new plantings: Work plant food into the garden bed at a depth of 6 to 8 in. by digging or tilling. For larger plants and shrubs, mix fertilizer into soil around root ball.

For established plants: Carefully work fertilizer in the soil around the plant. Avoid piling fertilizer against the stem or trunk.

Compost piles: Add alfalfa meal to the “green” or nitrogen layers of the compost pile. Keep pile moist for fastest results.


For success: Regular feeding promotes big, strong plants with colorful blooms and bountiful harvests.

Don’t overfeed. Overfeeding can be as harmful as underfeeding. Feeding too much can cause weak growth to become susceptible to pests and diseases. Different plants have different plant food needs – find out what your plant prefers and keep a regular schedule.
