Crab Meal is a superb source of organic nutrients for vegetable gardens and flower beds and is wonderful for building soil tilth. A byproduct of the Pacific Northwest Dungeness crab harvest, Crab Meal enhances beneficial soil microorganism populations due to its rich chitin content and also makes an incredible compost bio-activator.
Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds: Apply 5-10 lbs per 1--2 square feet and thoroughly mix into soil. For transplants, add 1-2 tablespoons per hole and water in well. Apply 2-3 lbs as a top dress 1-2 times throughout the growing season to promote plant growth.
Outdoor containers: For new planting, mix 1/2 cup per cubic foot of soil before planting. For established plants, mix 1-2 tablespoons per gallon of soil.
Trees and Shrubs: When transplanting, add 1-2 lbs per 1" of truck caliper to the newly dug hole, back fill soil and water in well.

What is "N-P or K"?
Nitrogen (N) - Nitrogen is necessary for lush, green, leafy growth. An excess, however, will promote vegetative growth at the expense of the fruit or flowers. Nitrogen is generally applied at higher concentrations in early growth stages.
Phosphorus (P) - Phosphorus will promote big, bright bloom and enhanced fruit production. Phosphorus is essential for fruiting, flowering, strong root growth and quality seed development.
Potassium (K) - Potassium, or potash, helps produce strong sturdy plants and quality fruit. Potassium naturally increases a plants resistance to all types of stress and is vital for cell growth and carbohydrate metabolism.
