    Default Found a new fert.

    It,s called Rooster Booster .Made from pelleterised(made up word) chicken poop , it has added seaweed/calcium & a range of trace elements.
    It is a 4 - 3 - 2.5 .
    It is totally organic & only non-battery chicken poop is used.
    It disolves pretty well in water so i think i,ll use some & cut back on my normal fert.
    Oh yes it really stinks so it must be good !
    (totally inappropiate smiley but i just saw it for the first time ROFLMAO)

    Note i do realise that these "natural" ferts need to decompose to release their nutrients so i make a bottle up & let it stand for a week or 2 to help this proccess along.

    You'd better be careful about that fermenting stuff in all the heat! I'd hate to hear you were arrested for creating toxic waste!! LOL!! Guess we need a smiley that is holding it's nose for stinkies and ferts!
