Neptune's Harvest Crab Shell
Neptune's Harvest Organic Crab Shell is an excellent dry organic plant food rich in calcium (23%) and magnesium (1.33%) and naturally contains nutrients plants need. Crab shell contains extra benefits not found in other fertilizer products. High calcium fertilizers have been shown to benefit bulbs and will also help to inhibit blossom end rot. It helps the soil retain moisture while building the organic matter simultaneously. Crab shell is high in chitin (Kite-en), which promotes the growth of chitin eating bacteria in the soil. It will help eliminate ants, grubs, fungus and harmful varieties of nematode eggs, because the exoskeletons are high in chitin. Adding crab shell to soil helps create a unfavorable environment for non beneficial fungus and root destroying nematodes by feeding the beneficial biological life that eats chitin and chitin based organisms. Crab shell is not a fungicide or nematicide but a natural biopesticide that is non-toxic to birds, animals, fish, and plants. Top dress crab shell around plants to help keep slugs and snails at bay while choking out weeds also, keeps moles, voles, mice and other critters from digging up bulbs and root vegetables.
