Nutrient package for veg growth
We like to push our gardens to their fullest possible yield—and that drains our soil of its vitality! Knowing how much time and energy it takes to measure individual amendments, we specially crafted Refresh 6-6-3 to restore and renew our growing media in one easy step. With its high nitrogen content, Refresh 6-6-3 is appropriate for fully established, nitrogen-loving plants. It encourages rapid development of leaves and other foliage during the vegetative stage (keep reading to learn more about NPK). To use, simply mix it into or top-dress your soil, and envision lush vegetation!
DERIVED FROM Fish bone meal, feather meal, alfalfa meal, worm castings, shrimp meal, soybean meal, crustacean meal, sulfate of potash, gypsum, langbeinite, glauconite, seabird guano, kelp meal, and glacial rock dust
ALSO CONTAINS NON-PLANT FOOD INGREDIENTS 10% humic acids (derived from carbonaceous shale)
NPK EXPLAINED All plants with green foliage have a need for three major macronutrients: nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K). During vegetative stage, nitrogen is most essential for the development of leaves and other green growth. Nitrogen remains important throughout the life of a plant, since foliage is required for plants to photosynthesize. However, eventually it will be time for a plant to transition into flowering/fruit-producing, at which point nitrogen should be reduced so that the plant redirects its energy away from its foliage and toward other growth. At that time, an increase in phosphorous and potassium is crucial. These two macronutrients enable plants to produce healthy root systems, strong stems, and bountiful flowers and fruits.
- 40-50 pounds Refresh per 2 cubic yards of soil
- 15-25 pounds Refresh per 1 cubic yard of soil
- 1/2-1 pound Refresh per 1 cubic foot of soil
- To top-dress when a greening effect is desired, spread a moderate amount around root zone and scratch/water into the soil.
