Ahimsa Organics Neem Cake
Slow Release Nitrogen, Aerates, Nourishes, Promotes Plant Growth & Resistance, Improves Soil Quality. Excellent for Vegan Organic Gardening.
Neem Cake is the residue obtained from neem seed kernels which have been crushed to extract the oil. Rich in N-P-K, it is an excellent organic fertilizer. Neem cake has been known to enrich the soil and protect the plant. Earthworm populations have been known to increase where neem cake has been applied.
Use full strength or mixed with other organic (kelp, seaweed, manure, etc.) or inorganic fertilizers to an extent of 10% to 15% by weight. Apply before (the area can be prepared up to a week or 10 days before planting) or during planting or for established plants around root zone. Use mixed into the soil 6-8 inches or as basal dressing. Coverage:180 to 360 lbs./acre, 1lb. for plots 100 to 160 sq.ft.
Exercise caution while using in potting mixes. Using more than 1% could cause a lack of seed germination or stunt young plants. I like to use it at a rate of 1/2 cup per cubic foot of soil mix and up to 1 cup per cubic foot for established plants.
