Alfalfa pellets are pleasant to handle, low dust pellets when compared to Alfalfa Meal.
Alfalfa pellets (or meal) qualifies as a complete fertilizer since it has significant quantity of all three plant macro nutrients (typical NPK analysis is 2-0.25-2*). This material will release nutrients essential for healthy plant growth. Plus, alfalfa residue has naturally-occurring plant growth hormones to stimulate new growth. This contributes to vigorous flowering and overall plant health. It’s a great soil conditioner which provides organic material to lighten heavy soils and increases moisture absorbency of fast-draining soils.. Long-favored by rose enthusiasts, Alfalfa is the primary ingredient our Antique Rose Farm Blend (a custom organic fertilizer blend we manufacture exclusively for the Antique Rose Farm in Snohomish, WA). Garden guru Ann Lovejoy recommends spreading an inch of Alfalfa (meal or pellets) under an inch of compost on beds and boarders.*
