Fertilizer For Every Gardener
Our fertilizer lineup provides versatility perfect for all your gardening projects; flowers, gardens, lawn, container pots, compost pile, and more. Alpha Green Milling Co. will complement or even replace other products that you may have purchased in the past, such as synthetic fertilizers, manure, and peat.
Vegetable and Flower Gardens
Prior to general planting, apply roughly 12 kg (25 lbs) per 1000 square feet, which works out to roughly 130 grams per square meter. Rotor-till or dig area to mix the pellets in, and repeat every 60 days for increased yields.
With no chance of burning, apply as needed to achieve desired results.
Plants, Ornamentals, Shrubbery
Use one cup of Alpha Green fertilizer per 30 cm (one foot) of weep line circumference. Keep material away from base of plants. Top dress as required, but discontinue in August so plants have the opportunity to prepare for winter dormancy.
Potted and Container Plants
100g (1/2 cup) of Alpha Green soil nutrition should be used per 4.5 Litres (1 gallon) of soil mass. This is best done during potting or re-potting. This method can be used in conjunction with a monthly application of alfalfa tea (see instructions below).
In humid environments, such as a greenhouse, put Alpha Green Nutrient fertilizer into the bottom 2/3 of the pot and top with soil.
Alfalfa ‘Tea’ for Optimal Plant Growth
To make Alfalfa Tea, soak 25g (1/8 cup) of Home Nutrient Pure pellets in 1L of water for 24 hours; or for a larger batch 400g (2 cups) alfalfa pellets and 20L (5 gallons) water. Pellets can be placed in a sock if you wish to keep fibres separate. Use within 2 days or use an aerator or bubbler to add oxygen to tea. Water plants as usual. You can re-soak Alpha Green Milling Co. Nutrient fertilizer pellets up to 3 times.
The remaining fibres can be watered or worked into the soil, or used to boost/accelerate compost. If using a water tank, put 20-40 kg of Alpha Green per 1000 L of water (80 to 160 lbs per 500 gallons) into the tank. If the tank has an agitator, the fertilizer can be sprayed on after about 20 minutes. Otherwise, allow the pellets to soak overnight and use the spray in the morning.
Do this once per month during the growing season, or as needed to achieve desired results.
