Monterey Fish and Poop Fertilizer Conc., Quart

Monterey Fish & Poop Liquid Fertilizer Concentrate 9-6-2, 1 qt. This is the ideal organic-based liquid fertilizer for out/indoor plants. It conditions the soil while feeding your plants and can be applied as a soil drench or foliar spray.
Fish & Poop is a great liquid fish and sea bird guano fertilizer combination. Its unique blend of fish based nutrients combined with guano forms a special matrix that exhibits a tested and proven record of vigorous plant growth. That sounds like a mouthful, but it boils down to the fact that in liquid fertilizers it doesn't get any better than this! As a foliar spray, it gives quick response in bedding plants, shrubs, trees, flowers, cuttings.

What the primary nutrients do
Plants need nitrogen to produce and maintain healthy leaves. Phosphorus promotes strong root growth and flower formation. Potash (potassium) is needed for strong plant structure and resistance to summer and winter stress.
When used as a foliar spray, mix 1/2 ounce per gallon of water and apply monthly during the growing season. Application with a hose-end sprayer or tank sprayer works very well. When using as a soil drench, mix 1/2 ounce per gallon of water and apply on the soil, beneath the canopy of plants, every 14 days. Be sure to water thoroughly after application so the nutrients will reach the roots. For longer-lived, more productive plants, don't fertilize during December and January. To prolong flowering of azaleas, camellias, hydrangeas and other flowering, acid-loving plants, don't fertilize during the blooming period. Feed monthly after flowers are spent.
