Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Was wondering the source of the fish. West coast or East coast?

Concerned about elevated levels of radiation being found in West coast fish. Would not wish to add that to my garden.

A
The Ferti-Lome Fish Emulsion Fertilizer 5-1-1 label states the plant food is made from fish solubles, yet doesn't specify the region or coast the fish come from. We recommend contacing the manufacturer VPG directly for specifics at 1-888-583-5296.

Q
Can I use tFerti-Lome Fish Emulsion Fertilizer 5-1-1 to green my lawn Saint Augustine grass?
A

Ferti-Lome Fish Emulsion Fertilizer 5-1-1 is labeled to be used on plants only and would not be recommended on a lawn.  We recommend using a soil analysis test kit or taking a sample of your soil to your local cooperative extension so your soil can be analyzed to determine what nutrients your soil is lacking.  This will help you deteremine what you would need to get your lawn green. The healthiest, hardiest lawns are fertilized 2-4 times per year, fall, summer, early spring and late spring.  We have a guide here regarding lawn care schedules as well.

Q
How much of the finished solution do you use once the Ferti-:Lome Fish Emulsion Fertilizer 5-1-1 is used per application?

Just planted 3-gallon double knockout roses (total of 4 side-by-side) and 3-gallon cordyline red sister (total of 6 side-by-side). After mixing the fertilizer with gallon of water how much of it should I feed each plant?

A

When using Ferti-Lome Fish Emulsion Fertilizer 5-1-1, you use 2 tbsp. per gallon of water and apply monthly during the growing and blooming season. You would want to use just enough to get the soil wet as you would with regualr watering of each rose.
