TOPIC: Organic Fertilizer Recipes

Organic Fertilizer Recipes 1 year 10 months ago #27185

Does anyone have a recipe for Fertilizer cakes? I did a search for a similar topic on here but couldn't find one (although the search can be a bit finicky, so please link the topic if one exists)

I want to start making them in large quantities to feed my ever growing collection and to give my wallet a chance to cool down (85 Euros for 5 kilos of Biogold!).

I'm also interested in teabag-fertilizer recipes if you have them.

Cheers,
Ed

I don't have any recipes but some club members use a cheaper brand of cakes.

Thanks Orlando,

I'll try to look for a dealer in the UK that sells them or something similar. I know that a lot of bonsai specialists like Herons make their own brand of fertilizer which may be good.

For anyone who's interested, I've found that a 1:1 mix by volume of cotton meal and blood and bone meal can be used in tea bags. I've also read that just cotton meal or cotton meal with powdered kelp added in a 9:1 ratio are good.

I sometimes peed on my trees at night when the bathroom is occupied. Trees seem healthy and green :)
