Down to Earth's Alfalfa Meal is an excellent fertilizer and soil amendment that is brimming with the nutrients that your plants need for brisk growth and dynamic development.

This alfalfa meal contains key macronutrients, numerous vitamins and minerals and Folic Acid, Magnesium (Mg), Iron (Fe) and Sulfur (S). Additionally, the amino acid content works in the soil to stimulate accelerated breakdown of nutritional sources in the soil, freeing up more for your plants.
