HOW TO USE YOUR CASTINGS
Growing Green Earthworm Castings are an excellent all natural plant food that comes to you directly from Mother Nature in their purest form. For millions of years the incredible earthworm has been one of the nature�s greatest producers of readily available plant food. When used in greater concentrations that found in nature, this non-burning, long lasting organic fertilizer can provide remarkable benefits.
Vegetable & Annual Flowers: Line the bottom and sides of plant holes and seed furrows with 1 to 2� of earthworm castings. Set seeds or plants in place and cover with soil.
Perennials: Work ½ cup into soil above their root zone taking care not to damage shallow roots. Apply in spring, early summer and early fall.
Potted Plants and Seed/Seed Flats-New: Potting mix- use 1 part earthworm castings to 3 part soil.
Potted Plants, Window Boxes or Hanging Baskets-Established: add 1 to 2� of earthworm castings to top of soil. Mix in taking care not to damage shallow roots-water-repeat every 2-3 months.
Roses, Trees, Shrubs and Berries-New or Freshly Transplanted: Mix 1 part earthworm castings to 3 part soil. Surround newly dug hole with mixture. Spread roots over a mound of the mix in the hole and cover.
Roses, Trees, Shrubs and Berries-Established: Mix 4 cups of earthworm castings into soil 2-3� below the surface for each plan.
Lawns-New: Apply 10 lbs per 100 sq. Ft. Work lightly into the topsoil. Mix in grass seed and water well.
Lawns-Established: Distribute as top dress 10lbs per 100 sq. ft

WEED B GON CONCERTRATE 500ML & 1L. FIESTA 4L
Unleash the power of iron.
- Weeds absorb iron through leaves and roots. Iron oxidation causes weeds to dry up, turn black, shrivel and die.
- Visible results within hours.
- Grass may darken slightly with one application but will return to normal green colour within days*
*when used as directed, results dependent on weather conditions

As a general rule of thumb in Nova Scotia, you would typically apply about 30 pounds (14kg) per 1000 square feet every year to maintain pH at present levels. However, this will not always be enough. If you are applying limestone to an already lush and green lawn, you can probably cut the above application rate in half. On the other hand if your lawn has a very low pH, you might need to double the typical application to correct the problem. (mosher limestone)
MOSHER PELLETIZED LIME
$4.99 PER BAG (COVERS 800 SQFT)
POWERED LIME 18KG $4.25
Pelletized lime has become an increasingly popular product as it provides 30 percent better coverage than powdered lime, it reacts in the soil more quickly, and it is easier to spread (less dust and more consistent coverage).
Mosher’s agricultural limestone will not burn and therefore can be applied at any time. The best spreaders for applying Mosher limestone are the drop style spreaders. These spreaders minimize dusting and apply an even coat. When applying, it is best to make two applications with the second perpendicular to the first. This ensures an even coat with no missed areas on your lawn. for this or more information vist http://www.mosherlimestone.com
Common Types of limestone
The two most common forms of limestone incorporated into growing media are calcitic and dolomitic limestone:
Calcitic limestone is calcium carbonate and it neutralizes acids in the growing medium. It provides some calcium, but almost no magnesium. Calcitic limestone dissolves faster than dolomitic limestone so it quickly adjusts growing medium pH within one week, but has shorter residual of up to 1-2 months.
Dolomitic limestone is a combination of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate and serves two purposes in the growing medium. Primarily, it neutralizes acids in the growing medium but also provides some additional magnesium and calcium for plant uptake. Dolomitic limestone dissolves slowly in the growing medium resulting in longer term pH adjustment (up to 2-4 months) and buffering to improve pH stability.
Ever wonder what the numbers found on the fertilizer bags stand for?
Nutrient values (N-P-K)are shown as total percentage of weight as packaged. Organic nutrients tend to have alot lower npk values than chemical nutrients. The amount of NPK required depends on the application or the results you are trying to achive
What does N-P-K stand for?
N = Nitrogen
Nitrogen is the first major element responsible for the vegetative growth of plants above ground. With a good supply, plants grow sturdily and mature rapidly, with rich, dark green foliage.
P = Phosphorus
The second major element in plant nutrition, phosphorus is essential for healthy growth, strong roots, fruit and flower development, and greater resistance to disease.
K = Potassium (Potash) The third major plant nutrient, potassium oxide is essential for the development of a strong root system. It helps plants to resist diseases, protects them from the cold and drought.
Iron = Iron is a important additive for your soil. It has three main purposes, the first being to help yellow lawns turn green, encourage growth and being a effective way to kill moss.
|FERTILIZER||RECCOMMENDED USE (USES)|
| Recommended for new seed/sod or used in early spring and fall to help establish/maintain a strong healthy root system added 2% iron helps grass hold a darker color and combats moss & weeds. also used lightly in vegetable & flower gardens (general purpose)
|Lawn Fertilizer with added 2% iron & 2% sulphur (Ferric sulfate) to effectively control moss in established lawns
|6-12-12||Used & trusted for years as a vegetable garden fertilizer also can be used on flower gardens and lawn (general purpose)
|10-10-10|| Tree & shrub fertilizer, can also be used in both flower & vegetable gardens (general purpose)
| Slow release fertilizer, recommended for lawns in early summer feeds for an extended period of time (depending on weather) promotes top growth and brings out color. added 2% Iron helps grass hold a darker color green as well as combats weeds & moss.
|27-0-0 (Ammonium Nitrate)|| Used very lightly around leafy plants such as rhubarb, lettuce etc to promote top growth.
|46-0-0 (urea)||most commonly used as an effective ice melter will not harm concrete and works in far colder temptures then salt, can also be used same as above with added caution 10,000sqft|
|17-17-17 +2% iron||A favorite tree fertilizer for evergreens also used early spring and fall to help establish/maintain a strong healthy root system added 2% iron helps grass hold a darker color and combats moss & weeds. (general purpose)|

|Corn gluten meal, the protein fraction in corn, is an herbicide that inhibits root formation in a wide variety of grasses and broadleaf weeds during germination. , because of its high nitrogen content can be applied to turf grass as a fertilizer and top dressing. Although large application rates are needed, it is an effective preemergent herbicide that suppresses growth of annual weeds such as crabgrass. The recommended rate and timing of application is 20 lbs./1,000 sq. ft. before germination of annual weeds in the spring, followed by a second, similar application in late summer.|
