I am trying to discover that if I use Blood fish and Bone as a fertiliser for my lawn, which is very small, what is the ratio for such a mixture, how much water and how much B F & B please?
I am not sure that it is recommended as a lawn feed.
I sprinkle it on my lawn Spring and water it in if dry does it the world of good
EG The organic fish blood and bone meal is a slow release fertilizer. Blood fish and bonemeal will not only strengthen garden plants, lawns, fruits and vegetables, it also improves the soil, the life of the bacteria in the soil and beneficial fungi such as mycorrhyza and micro bacteria.
Don't do it if you have dogs, they'll dig!
So will foxes.
Well I don't have a dog and certainly not a fox, since the builders put up another 190 dwellings nearby all the birds, foxes and other wild life have disappeared. I am looking for a liquid lawn fertilizer for my lawn simply because every time I use a spreader, one of those things you push around which has a revolving spindle and is supposed to dispense lawn feed evenly, I get black burn marks all over the place so I thought a liquid feed would overcome that little nuisance., hence the question about B F & B. Can anyone recommend a liquid lawn feed please?
Seaweed Ron. It's easy to get, although you can also get granular feeds which are feed only and not weed and feed products. DIY stores and G. Centres should have them
Wilko do their own brand high Nitrogen liquid lawn feed, £1.50 or so
Ah!, that's the answer, get a lawn FEED only, no weed killer!. So the weed killer is the one that burns the grass and leaves black marks all over the place. I definitely learn something new every day. Thank you one and all for your help.
Ron, the ' black' is possibly the dead moss which should be raked out.
Thanks for that Joyce, I will get to work on that and clear it out.
