Fig: cow manure

Postby Qitianlong » October 16th, 2017, 1:06 pm

Hey all,
I was preparing my vege patches recently and had a bit of composted cow manure left over, so I put some around one of my figs which is in a grow pot. It has responded really well! I've always used Sudden Impact for Roses chook poo, but never seen the amount of growth that I have from the recent cow poo experiment. Seems to be great for figs you want to develop quickly.

Holy Cow! - figs growing in 100% dynamic lifter for fast development - never heard of that before. I'm gonna have to research these back topics.
Thanks Ken & Qitianlong.

I don't think they care whether it came form a bird or a beast but they do love nutrients so feed growing figs with plenty of it
