Granular Products

Add the following when preparing beds, rows or potting soil mix for all types of plants. Application rates are based per 10’ x 4’ area OR 40 sq ft or for every wheel barrow load of soil.

1.   Use 600 g of Starter Food + 150 g of Humik. When making beds, first work the soil and afterwards broadcast the products uniformly before transplanting, hilling or seeding directly in rows. For potting soils mix, add the products to soil and blend well with a shovel.

2.   8-10 days after transplant, use any granular fertilizer like All Purpose 4-3-9 or Tomato & Vegetable Food 4-3-7 based on plant selection and use above recommended rates for square feet or 5-10 g around each plant and work it up in the top soil layer.

 

Liquid Products

Depending on plants, use a relevant liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks or as needed. Rates are mentioned per litre of water.

  1. Use General Purpose or Tomato & Vegetable at 10-15 ml per litre of water.
