A great organic based fertilizer can be found at your local feed store. Both alfalfa pellets or meal make a great fertilizer. Alfalfa is high in nitrogen as well as other needed nutrients. Vegetables and flower beds need 2 to 5 pounds of alfalfa to every 100 square feet dug into the top 6 inches before planting. Add 3⁄4 cup of either alfalfa meal or pellets to each rose plant in April and early May.
It can also be used as a lawn fertilizer. Unlike chemical fertilizers kids can help you spread it with their bare hands. It also adds much needed organic matter to stimulate the growth of your turf. Apply about 20 to 30 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn.
