Fish Meal

A natural fertilizer originally used in this country by Native Americans growing corn.  The used whole fish.  Has a high analysis of approximately 8-12-2, but is also smelly, so use with caution.  Very good for flowering plants.

Question: I use cornmeal and molasses on my St. Augustine grass. I also use corn gluten meal. I've been doing this for two years, and the grass looks great. But I would like it to be greener. What else can I do?  T.L., Salado

Answer: You might add fish meal or a fish meal-based blended fertilizer. Using it for fall fertilization will help with the color next season.
