Bone Meal (BM), as an organic fertilizer, is made up of
crushed and roughly ground animal bones and is great source of
phosphorus. The color is almost white and a fine powder. It works more
slowly than other fertilizers.
This rich source of phosphorus organic fertilizer consists
mainly of calcium phosphate and nitrogen, the amounts depending on the
type and age of the bone used. Where raw BM contains 2 to 4 percent
nitrogen, steamed BM has 1 to 2 percent nitrogen and up to 30 percent
phosphorus and can be purchased at hardware stores and nurseries.
BM provides overall plant quality, stem strength, root growth,
and helps normal plant maturity.
BM can be used as a repellant for certain insects, but it is
primarily used as an organic fertilizer.
- Used as a long-lasting source of phosphorus.
- Used as bulb food and transplanting fertilizer, because of
its high phosphorus content.
- Use BM in top layer of your garden soil where new roots can
Caution: Some BM has been linked
to sources of international smuggling to third world countries that
contained "Mad Cow" disease. Know the source!
