Fish Meal 8-6-0
Fish Meal is an excellent source of organic nitrogen and phosphorus and is recommended for vegetable gardens, flower beds and all types of outdoor plants, trees and shrubs. Fish Meal stimulates soil microbial life, promotes vigorous root development and provides an early season boost for all your plants.
Vegetable Gardens and Flower Beds: apply 3-5 lbs per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3" of garden soil. For transplants, apply 1-2 tablespoons per hole, mix thoroughly into soil and water in well. To feed established plants, side dress 2-4 tablespoons per plant each month during the growing season.
Outdoor Containers: For new plantings, mix 1/4 lb per cubic foot of soil. For established plants, side dress 1-2 tablespoons per gallon of soil.
Trees & Shrubs: Apply 1-2 lbs per 1" of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well.
Row Crops/Acreage: Apply 300-500 lbs per acre depending on specific crop needs of required pounds of actual nitrogen per acre.

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.
