Phosphorus Free contains no phosphorus, which means you can use it worry free if you happen to live in an area that restricts phosphorus use. WOW! Phosphorus Free is both a fertilizer and a pre-emergent herbicide. It fertilizes your garden by making nitrogen available to established plants as it decomposes. And it goes to work on weeds during germination—before you even see them. So keep your lawn and garden healthy and weed free, all while using no phosphorus and only one product—WOW! Phosphorus Free.

Directions for Use in gardens

DO NOT USE UNTIL DESIRED CROP PLANTS HAVE BECOME ESTABLISHED. Best results are obtained by mixing Granulated WOW! into soil (shallow tilling, not more than 3" deep). Apply at a rate of 20 to 30 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. Granulated WOW! contains approximately 10% slow-release nitrogen, so you should cut back on regular fertilization programs accordingly.

When setting out annual crops like tomatoes and broccoli: Mix Granulated WOW! into soil, both in planting rows and in-between rows. Apply a second application if you begin to see new weed germination. Till Granulated WOW! into soil at a rate of 20 to 30 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft.

On crops grown from seed, like beans, corn, spinach, etc.: Apply after seed has germinated and the first true leaves are established. Apply at the rate of 20 to 30 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. and till into top soil (not exceeding 3" deep). Apply a second application if you begin to see new weed germination, at the rate of 20 to 30 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft.

When transplanting strawberries or raspberries: Mix Granulated WOW! into soil, both in planting rows and in-between rows. Once plants are established, an additional application of 10 to 20 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. may be applied over the top of plants. Scratching Granulated WOW! into the soil surface whenever possible will improve weed control.

In an established strawberry bed: Four applications of 10 to 20 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. will provide optimum results. First application should be in early spring as soon as you can get into the plot. (Even while frost is still in the ground would be acceptable.) Schedule a second application approximately 6 to 8 weeks after the first, a third application in mid-August and a fourth in late September.

Although rains usually provide adequate moisture, you may want to water in Granulated WOW! following application. If you do water, water deeply and infrequently, allowing soil surface to dry. To be most effective, Granulated WOW! requires a drying period. The soil surface should not be continuously wet (as would be the case with automatic irrigation systems).
