Organic, Non-GMO Alfalfa Meal

I'm almost finished with I just finished an article about the difference between "All Natural" and Organic.

When it comes to "high risk" crops like Alfalfa, NO WAY would I use anything but Organic and Non-GMO!

We already offer Organic, Non-GMO Alfalfa Sprouting seeds at Mary's Heirloom Seeds.
Organic Alfalfa Sprouts
"From seed to sprout, Alfalfa sprouts are ready in 5-6 days and have a shelf life of 2-6 weeks.  Alfalfa is very easy to sprout and has a mild, pleasant taste.

The approximate yield for alfalfa is 7:1
Detailed sprout instructions included."

Today we have a NEW Organic and VEGAN plant food option to share with you. 

What is it?

Derived from leguminous perennial alfalfa plant used for pasture and cover crop. Primary benefit of this pleasant smelling meal is increasing organic matter, although it is also a valuable plant-derived fertilizer.

  • NPK analysis is 2.8-0.29-2.4
  • Contains trace minerals and triaconatol
  • Excellent addition to the compost pile for nitrogen content and absorbency
  • Roses respond especially well to alfalfa meal
  • WSDA Certified Organic Alfalfa Meal

Alfalfa provides many nutritional benefits not only for plant use, but for soil organisms as well. One very important ingredient is tricontanol, a powerful plant growth regulator. 

Alfalfa Meal is EXCELLENT to use with Tomatoes, Peppers, Squash and Roses.

I've shared about NPK ratings before. Read Plant Nutrients - Getting Started
NPK stands for Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium (potash).  What does each nutrient do? In addition to other properties, Nitrogen helps plant foliage to grow strong. Phosphorous helps roots and flowers grow and develop. Potassium (Potash) is important for overall plant health.

Organic, Non-GMO Alfalfa Meal is now available at Mary's Heirloom Seeds.  This plant food variety is also VEGAN.  We are accepting Pre-Orders NOW.  Organic Alfalfa Meal ships after January 1, 2015
