Bone Meal: 4-12-0 Awesome source for phosphorus and helps the plant to grow a healthy root system. Works great in conjunction with blood meal.

Bat Guano: 0-5-0 Excellent source of phosphorus and an essential organic additive for vegetable gardens. Fish Emulsion: 2-4-5 Has a little bit of everything.

Cottonseed Meal: 7-2-2 Has a high percentage of nitrogen, second best source of organic nitrogen after blood meal. Cottonseed meal also acidifies the soil. Feather meal: 7-0-0 to 12-0-0 It takes 4 months to break down and release its nutrients, but it is a high nitrogen fertilizer. It is a poultry processing byproduct. Rock phosphate: 0-2-0 A mineral rock powder, rock phosphate is an excellent source of phosphorous and calcium.
