floraPell is a natural product (organic fertilizer), thereby the composition can vary within small tolerances. The depot fertilizer floraPell is always dosed below or around the root bale and than covered with 5 cm soil (substrate).
Fruit woods: according to nutritional requirements about 70 to 140 g / wood
Vegetables: depending on nutritional requirements about 10 to max. 50 g / plant
Pot and ornamental plants: about 10 g of pellets (about 1 table-spoon) per liter of substrate
When planting trees in the wild, directly enter the sheep wool pellets into the planting hole. It should be noted that the sheep wool fertilizer in the soil (substrate) strong swells. After use, seal pack well!
|• stone fruit||Fertilization with 100-140 g per tree|
|• pome fruit||Fertilization with 100-140 g per tree|
|• berry bushes||Fertilization with 100 g per shrub|
When used in the field of sheep wool fertilizer should be added directly into the planting hole. Just as the sheep wool pellets can develop their properties (loosen soil by swelling effect, sustainable water storage) optimally. After use, seal pack well!
|• Vegetables with low nitrogen (N) - Requirements:||10-15 g / plant (lettuce, radishes, peas, beans, etc.)|
|• Vegetables with moderate nitrogen (N) - Requirements:||15-30 g / plant (lettuce, carrots, turnip, cucumber, etc.)|
|• Vegetables with high nitrogen (N) - Requirements:||30-50 g / plant (tomato, leek, Chinese cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, etc.)|
Put sheep wool fertilizer at potted plants just below the substrate. It should be noted that the sheep wool pellets swell in the substrate. After use, seal pack well!
|• Pot diameter 10cm (approx 1 liter soil)||10g floraPell sheep wool pellets|
|• Pot diameter 18cm (approx 4 liters soil)||15g floraPell sheep wool pellets|
|• Pot diameter 22cm (about 7 liters soil)||20g floraPell sheep wool pellets|
|• Pot diameter 28cm (approx 13 liters soil)||30g floraPell sheep wool pellets|
|• Pot diameter 32cm (approx 21 liters soil)||50g floraPell sheep wool pellets|
The biodegradability of the sheep wool pellets was detected by the method of soil microbial respiration. The effect of active soils by turnover of the microorganisms can be determined with this meth-od (according to DIN 19737:2001-04).
The sheep wool pellets are decomposed and oxygen is consumed. Carbon dioxide and water are produced. The quantity of carbon dioxide is a measure of the respiratory and life processes. The carbon dioxide output of soil organisms is referred to as soil respiration.
Planting tests have shown that our sheep wool fertilizer is a very good nitrogen supplier for at least 10 months. Then the sheep wool pellets are completely decomposed. The following photo shows the fertilizing effect depending on the quantity of added sheep wool pellets in a period of 8 weeks. The optimum is the addition of 10 g of sheep wool fertilizer per liter of planting soil.
