How To Use
Earthbank Fishcompst is a powerful soil amender, and even a small amount will significantly improve the quality of your soil. It is high in Nitrogen, microorganisms and plant nutrients to build soil capacity and ensure plant productivity and resilience. It is OMRI listed for use in certified organic food production, and safe use in all applications.
New Garden Beds & New Lawns: Depending on the quality of your soil medium, apply 1-3 inches of Earthbank Fishcompost to the existing soil. Mix it in to the top 3-4 inches, where the roots of your plants feed the most. Plant directly into the blend, and then top dress 1 inch with Earthbank Fishcompost only to assist with soil moisture retention and weed suppression. Leave a ¼ inch space around the stem of the plant.
Existing Potted Plants: Remove as much soil as possible from the top of the pot without damaging the roots, and replace with 1-2 inches of Earthbank Fishcompost.
Enhancing Potting & Garden Box Mixes: Add 1 part Earthbank Fishcompost to 2 parts of your soil and blend thoroughly. After planting, top dress 1 inch with Earthbank Fishcompost only. This will continue to feed the plants as they grow, as well as assist with moisture retention and weed control.
Established Lawns: Cover lawn lightly with ¼ to ½ an inch of Earthbank Fishcompost. Gently rake it in and water thoroughly (evening watering is best). Repeat as needed.
As A Mulch: Apply 2-3 inches of pre-existing garden beds. This will provide effective weed control for up to 2 years, increased soil water retention capacity, and ample nitrogen and nutrients for plant resiliency and growth. Leave a ¼ inch space around the stem of the plant/base of the tree.
