Hi there. I ws handed a bag of phostrogen multi-purpose. Not wild about it as I dont think its organic but I'm gardeningon a budget of zero so any assistance is appreciated.

Its a small bag, probably less than a kilo, and unfortunately the cardboard box it came in was destroyed. Woudl anyone have the dilution directions for me. Amazingly this info is not on the phostrogen website?

Thanks

I browsed 'Phostrogen' on the web site but found little help under the Bayer site which is where I ended up.

I tried other bits of the same site and found that a normal mix is a level teaspoonful in 9 litres (2 Gallons) of water applied once per week, with plain water as necessary in between.

If nobody else has a more definitive answer this might be a starting point?

this stuff is great and use by pro's and us, you get a blue measure level, to 4.5 litre,s, it would be a level table spoon i guess, so to a 9 litre water can 2 spoons, its also very cheap, but very good. not a tea spoon and once every 2 weeks
