Preparing New Flower Beds
Mix into the top four or five inches of soil at the rate of 4 lbs. per 80 square feet. An additional feeding should be made after the plants are well established.
Seeds: Plant to the recommended depth. If the flower bed has already been prepared (see above) simply fill the hole with prepared soil. If the soil has not been prepared, cover the seed with soil and sprinkle 2 tablespoons over the seed.
Flowers from Containers: Gently remove the plant from its container. Loosen the roots and spread them into the prepared hole. The depth of the hole should not be greater than the size of the root ball. Refill the hole with prepared soil and tamp gently but firmly. If the soil has not been prepared add 2 tablespoons mixed with soil for seedlings from market packs. For larger plants, mix 1/2 cup with the soil and fill as above. Always finish by watering thoroughly.
Feed monthly from the beginning of the growing season until the middle of September.
Individual Plants: Broadcast 1/4 cup Flower-Tone around the plant. Be careful not to put the plant food on the plant foliage or stem and do not mound the application. Sprinkle around like adding salt and pepper to food. After feeding water thoroughly.
Flower Beds: Broadcast at the rate of 4 lbs. per 80 square feet. After feeding, water thoroughly and rinse off any fertilizer that is on the foliage.
Ingredients: Hydrolyzed feather meal, pasteurized poultry manure, cocoa meal, bone meal, alfalfa meal, greensand, humates, sulfate of potash and sulfate of potash magnesia.
