Steps-1.prepare the soil properly using plenty of organic material,gypsum,and fertilizer.2. measure, you need to know your square footage to use the proper amounts of ingredients. For 100 sq. ft. we recommend 6 bags of compost,10lbs of gypsum, and 1-2 lbs of fertilizer depending on which you choose. We love bone and blood meal as a combination, fertilome start and grow, and Organo 10-10-10. We call the Organo All Purpose the old farmers formula!3.Know the temperature and the timing.
