WANTED: Source for Alfalfa Meal

ncgardner(7B)July 16, 2006

There have been many post concerning Alfalfa Meal or pellets for making the Alfalfa Tea. Could someone suggest a good place to purchase either the pellets or the meal in the Raleigh area. Also, is this the right time of year to start with the Alfalfa tea or should I wait till fall?

I can't give you a source in Raleigh, though if you have a feed store nearby they carry it. I was always told not to put it out once we're within 6 weeks of frost because it would encourge new growth and frost could burn the plant. Do be careful as I burned a few plants pretty good with alfalfa tea (buddleia).

Good luck!

Now is the time if you are going to. do not wait until fall. Probably any feed and seed store will have them. I put it on mine July 4th and had forgotten how really really really bad it smells since it had been a few years. Mine had been percolating about 7 or 8 weeks! You can scratch the meal or pellets straight into the soil. The tea just gets to the roots faster.

Heather, I am surprised you burned your buddleia with the tea! I didn't know you could do that!
