New Plants: Prior to planting, broadcast evenly based on Application Chart below, work into soil.
Row Planting: Prior to planting, apply 10 lbs. per 100 foot row or 1 cup per 5 feet, in a foot wide band, work into soil.
New Perennial Plants: Apply prior to planting as directed above and then apply again in the late fall. Every year thereafter, simply apply once after dormancy.
Tree Application: Apply 1 cup for every inch in diameter of the tree trunk. Spread in the width of the branches of the tree canopy.
