Use Evergro Bone Meal once early each spring for feeding established bulbs. Spread 2kg per 10 meters squared, and incorporate lightly into the soil.
PLANTS: When planting (or transplanting) plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, and etc, apply Evergro Bone Meal to the soil, and mix it thoroughly into the top 10cm (4″) of soil
PREPARED BEDS – Measure plant bed area (length x width), and apply Evergro Bone Meal at 2kg per 10 meter squared
INDIVIDUAL PLANTS – Use 30g (1 small handful) for small plants and up to 60g (1 large handful) for larger plants

A complete fertilizer is a plant food which feeds the entire plant, and promotes growth, while Bone Meal specifically feeds the root system, and helps to establish strong and healthy roots
When transplanting, handle plants very carefully. Don’t use a tree or bush trunk as a handle ; carry the plant from the bottom
Place the entire root ball (burlap and all) into the prepared soil. Loosen the string and burlap around the base of the plant’s , trunk and cover with soil.
