Fish bone meal
Fish bone meal is our product of the month for January with all of the bare root planting happening! Fish bone meal provides a natural source of phosphorus, something that our county's soil typically lacks. Adding fish bone meal to your hole while you plant your bare root trees and shrubs will give them just what they need. We offer it in a variety of sizes (including 1 lb bags).
