How long before Blood and Bone nutrients are available to the plant?

This is the stuff I got and it says it's a slow release fertilizer:  

 

My question is: How long before the nutrients are available to the plant?

Once mixed into the soil microbes start making it available. Two weeks id say before its really effective 

Blood will be faster than bone

Agree with @blackpoolbouncer.

 

After a week or so you start to notice the plant taking it up but its really after two weeks you start to really see the difference.

 

That is permitting your soil is active with microbes and activity.

If you use it inside, it will smell like rotting dead bodies....

Okay thanks.  I've still got to prep some spots for my guerilla grow so I'll mix the next lot into the soil rather than sprinkling it on top like I previously did.

Some of my spots have less than desirable soil.  I'll compost up those spots tomorrow.

I can imagine.  Luckily this is a guerilla grow in bush land.

Why not just get a box of miracle gro or Phostrogen. MG is more suited to veg and Phos for flowering if you want to be fussy but MG would be fine. Did some nice plants in the 90's with MG.

My mate's small commercial setup in the 90's ran on Miracle Gro and Epsom salts!

I'm often tempted to do a run with it again these days as I'm often having issues that we never did have back then.

(Well. No issues apart from interference from the local constabulary!)

:-)

Neither is available in my country.  I'll be using blood & bone, sulphate of potash, dolomite lime, compost and seaweed liquid concentrate.
