The Mature Manure
Perfectly Natural. Naturally Perfect
Trees and Shrubs

When planting new trees and shrubs in sandy or clay soil, we recommend mixing Black Kow® with
and equal part of soil from the planting hole.
Wait one month to add chemical fertilizer. Keep soil around trees and shrubs moist but do not overwater.

Once the new tree is established, and for established trees, topdress in the spring and fall with one-half
inch of
Black Kow® before adding any additional fertilizer and mulch.

Black Kow® composted cow manure with help hold water and fertilizer in the soil before releasing
them as needed by the plant.
Gardening is hard work.
