bone meal on lawn?

maxineheather(z5 MA)May 15, 2007

This is my second year of organic lawn care, but the lawn is VERY stressed and is recovering slowly. Last spring we had such bad red thread that you could actually see the pink fungus all over the lawn.

In the fall and spring I fed my ornamental trees with bone meal, and the grass around them is the thickest and darkest green you've ever seen! We have applied organic fertilizer with corn gluten to the lawn, and also lime to work on the acidity. What do you think if I also spread bone meal across the whole thing, or just the worst spots? Any thoughts?

Please try it and tell us how it works. I am not aware of anyone using bone meal on their lawn.
