Organic Fertilizers – the mystery unravelled!

March 4, 2011 at 8:30 pm Leave a comment

Well, I’m so happy!  I attended the last Soil Management class last night and all my wishes came true!  I can now determine which organic fertilizers and how much of them to use on my garden (after a soil test).  The key to the mystery is three data tables that we were shown how to use last night.  I hope to get them electronically and I will edit them to be more small garden friendly – at the moment all the data are per acre – at the scale I garden I need per foot – not too difficult to change on a spreadsheet!  Maybe I could post them on the blog – have to find out if that is possible.

I must say even I find it a little strange that this makes me so happy, but I think I was so frustrated back in 2009 when I got a recommendation for my fruit trees for using 10-10-10 fertilizer and I couldn’t work out what I should use as an organic alternative.  I ended up using chemical fertilizer which annoys me every time I think about it.
