An embarrassing question
« on: April 20, 2019, 17:22 »
my new Fish, blood and bone, says to use 2 ounces to a square yard,   but I only want to tickle in a it around my new plants, and then water them.   So how much should I use, like a teaspoon full,   less,  more.  I don't know.  Help please.    Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

I must admit I never measure mine precisely.  I simply put some onto a trowel and shake it gently around the plant to cover enough that it can be easily seen, but not so much that it forms a thick layer, if that makes sense.

Thanks jaydig.  That makes perfect sense to me.   I think you should write those instructions on the box as well.   :D   So that is one more of tomorrows jobs sorted.    By the way, I eventually bought the box from Wilko.   1.50 for 1 and half kilos,  it was 4.99 for 2.5 kgs at the Gc.   I also got 12 x plants label and a pencil included for .50p  and 2 x verigated ivy for a hanging basket for 1.20 each.    I do so love a bargain  :lol:   I would have bought 2 boxes of F.B and B, then I can do all of the garden, but couldn't carry it. Thanks again, Happy Easter.  Mrs Bouquet

All done, sprinkled some around the new plants with the trowel and very lightly stirred in and watered - happy plants I hope. Thanks again,  Mrs Bouquet

I'm sure your plants will appreciate the f, b & b, Mrs B.   Just watch them grow away, especially now we've had some warmer weather.  As you probably noticed I'm not a very precise gardener, but more one of the "chuck it in and see what happens" type.   Funnily enough, instinct usually seems to win the day, and if I've forgotten to take my glasses to the allotment I can't read the instructions anyway, so I seem to rely on instinct more as the years go by.

MB, I have a little tub of BFB and just get a palmful then scatter it around the plant but it depends on how big the plant is. Imagine using a pepper mill and keep turning it until the area around the plant is lightly covered, then use your fingers or a hand fork to scrabble it in.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.
