Alfalfa Pellets have a small amount of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (5-1-2). They are used mostly for roses because of their trace elements, but can be used all over the garden if you wish. Primarily a source of nitrogen, this pelletized fertilizer also contains trace minerals and triacontanol, a plant growth promoter. If you decide to use it, broadcast 25-50 lbs. Alfalfa Pellets per 1,000 sq. ft. before planting, or apply as a side dressing later in the season for plants requiring additional nitrogen.
