Contains a culture of completely natural and harmless soil bacteria. With the help of these 'friendly' bacteria pea and bean plants are able to make or 'fix' all the nitrogen they need to be able to reach their full potential, producing large, healthy crops. The bacteria can only form 'nodules' on the roots of the peas and beans, so they cannot supply nitrogen to any other plants. So unlike traditional fertilisers they do not feed the weeds!
Place the chosen pea or bean seeds into a clean container, for example a jam jar or plastic bag. Sprinkle or spray the seeds with just a few drops of water. Use rainwater or mineral water as it does not contain chlorine. The seeds should be damp without any excess water in the container. Open the 'Booster' sachet carefully and sprinkle powder on to the seeds. Use Â¼ of a sachet to treat one seed packet. Mix the powder into the seeds to ensure all the seeds are finely coaqted. Once opened, store in a dry, airtight box and use to treat up to 4 packets of any Mr Fothergill's peas and beans. Product accepted for use in Organic Farming.
