2 cups ≈ 1 lb; 1/2 cup ≈ 4 oz; 1 tbsp ≈ 0.5 oz
Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds:
To prepare new gardens, apply 2.5-5 lbs per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3″ of soil. For new transplants, add 1-2 tablespoons per hole, mix into soil and water in well. For established plants, side dress ½ – 1 cup, depending on size of plant, once each month during the growing season.
For new plantings, add ⅛ – ¼ cup per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 5-10 lbs per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 2-4 tablespoons per gallon into the soil surface once each month during the growing season.
Trees & Shrubs:
Spread 1-2 lbs 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 amended soil to fill in around new tree and water in well.
Add 2-4 tbsp per gallon of water and let steep up to 48 hours agitating periodically. Apply the solution directly to the soil around plants or filter and apply as a foliar spray. Be sure to use all of the solution once it is prepared.
Apply 200-400 lbs per acre depending on specific crop needs. Incorporate into soil 2-3 weeks before planting for best results.
