Little boxes of Pennington Bone Meal from garden shops read "no offensive odor." I find that the squirrels and other critters don't bother plants with Pennington Bone Meal in the mix as much as they did other brands. My local co-op says their bone meal has no mention of odor control on the label. I really like adding bone meal to encourage root growth on new plants and especially for daylilies and other tuberous-root plants, and I've been planning to use it more broadly this year to help establish newly potted plants, but I don't want to find them ransacked by the wildlife.

If "odor-free" is the key, where can I find a wholesale supplier of stinkless bone meal?

I'd like to hear of others' experience using bone meal.
