Feather Meal

Updated: Feb 14





Feather Meal is a type of organic fertilizer that is made from ground-up feathers. It is a great source of nitrogen, which is an essential nutrient for plant growth.


*14-0-0


*Slow release nitrogen source.


*Increases green leaf growth.


*Stimulates soil biology.


*Improves soil structure.


*5 lb per 100 sf, mix into top 3" of soil.


How to apply?

Feather Meal is easy to use. You can either mix it into the soil before planting or use a weed fork to gently work it into the uppermost layer of the soil.


Whichever way you choose, just be sure to water your plants well when you're done, so the microbes in the soil can start breaking it down. If you're amending a large space with Feather Meal, a good rule of thumb is to mix 3 to 5 pounds per 100 square feet. Remember to test your soil before applying any fertilizers to make sure you add the right amount of each nutrient.


Because Feather Meal isn't water-soluble, there's no point in mixing it into a sprayer and trying to use it that way. It won't make application any easier, in fact, it will just clog up your brand-new spray bottle and render it useless.
