Chicken Compost

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

I did a lot of gardening today. Besides removing a ton of barkdust (not literally) from the east facing slope, I replanted a hydrangea that I burned by using chicken compost. I removed the said chicken compost & replaced with planting compost.

Gardening tip: don't use chicken compost on your plants! Toss it into your compost bin for 3 to 4 months before use. Chicken compost contains more nitrogen than any other compost. I'm hoping my hydrangea will come back next year and in general be happier & healthier with the soil ammendment I made today! --Karli
