Lora, Alfalfa pellets are used in additon to all the regular fertilizers
that you would normally use.  It is my understanding and intention when I
add them that they contain a growth stimulator as I recall in the article
I read.  This stimulates the plants above them to grow greener and
healthier as I understand and it certainly seemed to be the case in my
garden in Tennessee.  The plants in those beds had more growth, less
disease and better bloom and more rebloom!  Enjoy!
