This Organic Crab Shell Fertilizer is a wonderful fertilizer to have for your lawn or garden. It's a great source of NPK, Calcium (23%) and Magnesium (1.33%)
. This will equal better soil, and more vibrant plants. To learn more about NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potash), please see this explanation
If you are having any sort of nematode or fungus problems, this fertilizer is also able to help you deal with it. Crab shell is very high in chitin, and promotes the growth of chitin eating bacteria in your soil
. Fungus and nematode exoskeletons are high in chitin, so the crab shell creates a hostile environment for fungus and nematodes.
When applying in the garden, the best method is to till the crab shell fertilizer in early spring - as soon as it can be worked into the soil. For perennial crops, apply at the end of dormancy. Make sure you mix thoroughly with the soil, taking care not to apply in concentrated form directly to the roots.
If you are applying as a soil conditioner for fruit groves, ornamental trees, lawns and turf, apply directly as a top dressing.
Following these instructions and using this fertilizer in your lawn or garden will lead to vibrant plants, and will help stimulate plant life and growth in the garden!
