Fish blood and bone

I've just joined today and not sure where to post yet!

I've been told I can put fish blood and bone on my lawn but I'm not sure of the quantity to use.   And do I water it in immediately?

    Sprinkle 2 oz (50g) per square yard very evenly in spring and water in immediately. Too much or not watered in will burn the lawn, and cause bare patches.

    Thanks very much for your replies, it's a great deal of help.

    Thought it was too hot and dry to do at the moment, don't want to make the lawn look worse than it is image

    Never gave the foxes a thought!

    The foxes seem to prefer the flowerbeds.  Easier to bury things. I dug up a sausage last week. Someones left over from a `bbq I think.

    Liquid is far better in this weather lilleybee, something like Miracle Gro Lawn Food or Evergreen is another type.  I'd wait till we've had some rain though.

    No, I was just forking it over to put some dahlias in. its very strange to find sausages growing in the garden.
