Provides essential nutrients for metabolic functions, cell structure and flower formation
Down To Earth™ Liquid Bone Meal 0-12-0 is a readily available source of phosphorus and calcium designed to promote increased flower, fruit, seed and vegetable production. As one of the three big nutrients for plants, phosphorus plays a role in both root and bloom development, which helps produce high-quality fruit and flowers.
Most bone meal fertilizers take years to fully breakdown in the soil. This means you may not see results for several growing seasons. DTE™ Liquid Bone Meal 0-12-0 uses a finer grind of bone phosphate than our competitors to give you both fast- and slow-release phosphorus, so you can see results more quickly.
DTE™ Liquid Bone Meal 0-12-0 is recommended for when you’re putting plants into the ground, either as bulbs, seeds or when you’re transplanting starts and previously potted plants. The phosphorus in bone meal helps plants take to new soil by boosting root development. Strong root development means plants will grow faster and healthier because they can absorb more water and nutrients from the soil. You will have larger carrots and potatoes, and flowers will produce bigger blossoms.
Use DTE™ Liquid Bone Meal throughout the growing season to help prevent common nutrient deficiencies, improve flavor, quality and yield and to enhance bud, flower and fruit development. The fast-release phosphorus makes DTE™ Liquid Bone Meal 0-12-0 an excellent choice for foliar applications. Use it on plants during early bud formation and fruit enlargement for an extra shot of phosphorus.

Shake Well Before Using
Down To Earth™ Bone Meal is most effective in soil applied, irrigation and fertigation applications, and is designed for plants grown in garden soils, potting soils or soilless media. For best results when used as a liquid foliar, combine with a natural surfactant to increase adhesion to the leaf surface. Filtered to 841 microns (can pass 20 mesh screen) for easy application. Check equipment manufacturer’s specifications for particle size and compatibility requirements.
Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds:
For soil applied solutions, mix ½-¾ cup (4-6 oz.) per gallon of water and apply around the base of established plants. For liquid foliar, mix 2-4 tbsp. (1-2 oz.) per gallon of water. Spray foliage to the point of run-off starting at the four leaf stage and then every 1-2 weeks during the growing season.
Use 2-4 tbsp. (1-2 oz.) per gallon of water depending on size of plant and growth pattern desired. For rapid growing plants, use stronger rate. Repeat application with each watering or as needed.
Trees, Shrubs & Vines:
For soil applied solutions, mix 3-4 cups (24-32 oz.) in 5 gallons of water and apply around the base of established plants or inject into surrounding soil. For liquid foliar, mix 1 cup (8 oz.) in 5 gallons of water. Spray foliage to the point of run-off. Apply monthly throughout the growing season or as needed.
Use 2 tbsp. (1 oz.) per gallon of water. Apply solution around the base of plants. Repeat application every two weeks in spring and summer and once a month in fall and winter.
