Meat & Bone Meal

Meat and bone meal is a type of organic fertilizer that can be used to increase the nutrient content of soil, particularly nitrogen and phosphorus. However, it is important to use it carefully to avoid negative effects on the environment and plant growth.

What is it?

Bone meal fertilizer is made from steamed animal bones, which are then ground into a fine powder or granules for application on plants or crops. Bones are full of nutrients and minerals that benefit your plants, helping to make them healthier and stronger. However, bone meal fertilizer is not suitable for every situation.

Most commercially available bone meal comes from beef cattle, though any bone will work. While this sounds like a foolproof strategy for better plants, not all soil will benefit from bone meal. Learning the facts about when it’s useful (and when you’re better off avoiding it) might make all the difference in your garden this year.

How to use?

To use meat and bone meal as a fertilizer, it is recommended to mix it with soil before planting. The amount of meat and bone meal to use depends on the type of soil and the plants being grown, but generally 1-2 cups per square yard of soil is sufficient. It is important to avoid applying too much, as this can lead to excessive nitrogen contamination in soil and water.
