How to Use

Apply in the spring after the weather warms. One pound equals 3 cups.

  • Top-dress the soil – Using Alfalfa Meal as a top-dressing is easy and need only be done twice during the growing season. Simply broadcast on top of your garden beds at the recommended rate of 3 pounds per 100 square feet. For individual  plants, sprinkle 1/2 cup around small flowers (like annuals) and 1 cup around lager plants (perennials). For rose bushes and flowering shrubs of the same size, apply 3 cups. Always water it in after applying.
    Note: Only apply it to the surface of the soil and don’t over-apply.
  • Make an Alfalfa Meal tea – Quicker benefits are achieved when alfalfa is brewed into a tea. Put one cup alfalfa meal in a 5 gallon bucket. Fill bucket with water and allow it to sit from 4 – 6 days, stirring it daily. The result will be a thick tea that can be applied to the soil surface underneath shrubs and and flowers. The longer it brews the better, but the more “aromatic” it will become. Add 1/2 cup of Coast of Maine Kelp Meal to that bucket and make an even more beneficial tea. It can also be used as a foliar spray after straining the solids out through cloth. In liquid or spray form, alfalfa tea can be applied every 4-6 weeks or as often as needed throughout the growing season.
  • For use on – Annuals, vegetables, perennials (dahlias and roses love it!) and flowering shrubs. Do not use with acid-lovers like rhododendrons and azaleas.
