Our liquid fertilizers have an indefinite shelf-life, until water is added. Always shake well before use. The longer the product is stored, the better youíll have to shake it up.
Keep products in cool dry area. Do not let freeze if possible. It wonít hurt the product, but could crack the bottle.
A gallon of Neptune's Harvest Liquid fertilizer will cover 8000 sq. feet, a quart covers 2000 sq. feet. Apply to your lawn once per month. If you are using a Chapin Sprayer, it holds 1 quart so will do 2000 sq. feet. The 4 oz. setting on the top of the dial works great. Eyeball 2000 sq. feet, and begin spraying walking backwards in a fanning motion. When the sprayer is empty, you should have covered the 2000 sq. feet.
Another great addition to you lawn is Crab Shell. It helps control Ants, Grubs, Fungus and weeds. Don't let its color fool you, crab shell will green up your lawn too!
10 lbs. per 1000 sq. feet and use at least twice a year (spring and fall). You can use as often as once per month if needed, for really poor soil.
Soak seeds in a solution of 1 tablespoon Neptune's Harvest Fertilizer per quart of water, until they begin to swell. The bigger the seed, the longer this is. The beans may take overnight. Once you plant the seeds, water with the solution youíve soaked them in. This can get a little smelly, so if you have a basement or side room you donít use much, that would be best. Itís really not THAT bad, and goes away quickly.
After that use Ĺ oz of fertilizer(1 tablespoon) per gallon of water, once a week. Once the 1st primary leaves are out, and the plants are 4 to 6 inches tall, up it to 1 oz. per gallon of water, once a week.
Upon transplanting presoak the new location by using 1 oz of Neptune's Harvest per gallon of water poured right into the hole, then put the transplant in quick, before all the water is absorbed by the soil. This allows the nutrients to go right into the root ball and surrounding soil. The plant will be off to a great start and youíll prevent transplant shock. Water as needed thereafter.
After planting, you can begin foliar feeding using the same 1oz/gal dilution rate. You may continue fertilizing as often as once a week, but in most cases every 2 to 3 weeks is adequate.
All of our liquid fertilizers should be mixed well before dilution; a 5-gallon pail can be heavy and awkward to handle. Instead of attempting to lift or shake your pail find a soft surface(such as a grassy area)to roll/flip it around as best you can. If you find the technique described above too cumbersome still, you can use an old broom stick to stir things up until the weight becomes more manageable.
Always use caution when mixing your pail: ensure the lid is securely fastened before you begin, if stirring use a clean object to avoid undesired contamination of the remaining product.
Locate the spigot on the top of the pail, pop off the white cap and then you will see a pull tab. Pulling firmly on the collar should 'pop' it out creating a spout. Once the required amount is dispensed you may collapse the spout again, if desired, and securely fasten the cap.
