    Down To Earth’s Cottonseed Meal 6-2-1 is traditionally used to feed plants that thrive in lower pH soils, such as berries, flowering shrubs and evergreen trees. DTE Cottonseed Meal 6-2-1 is a high-quality plant derived source of nitrogen and can be applied throughout the growing season to promote green growth and optimum plant development.

    2.5 cups ≈ 1 lb; ¼ cup ≈ 1.6 oz; 1 tbsp ≈ 0.4 oz

    Berries:
    To prepare new gardens, apply 2.5-5 lbs per 100 linear feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3″ of soil. For new berry plants (1-2 years old), prepare transplant hole and mix ½ cup with the backfill soil. Use amended soil to fill in around the new plant and water in well. To feed established berries, apply 1 cup per plant in early spring, mix into soil surface and water in well. Repeat application when blooms appear and again in fall at half the recommended amount.

    Trees & Shrubs:
    Spread 1 lb per 1″ of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well. For new trees, prepare transplant hole and mix 1-2 cups with the backfill soil. Use amended soil to fill in around the new tree and water in well.

    Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds:
    To prepare new gardens, apply 2.5-5 lbs per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3″ of soil. For new transplants, add 1-2 tbsp per hole, mix into soil and water in well. To feed established plants, side dress 2-4 oz, depending on plant size and desired growth rate, once each month during the growing season.

    Containers:
    For new plantings, add 1-2 tbsp per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 5-10 lbs per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tbsp per gallon into the soil surface once each month during the growing season.
