This was given to me to try on my plants. Just sprinkle a pinch on the soil line. Water well for two days and then water as usual. This is the most amazing slow dissolving fertilzier. Every tree I use it on has the leaves turn deep green and the colors of the flowers are so much deepier. Comes as shown. This is a small bag you are purchasing. Will last you up to 6 months. If you want a larger bag simply purchase the large bag of green up.
