The best multi purpose compost this year

Posted: 19/01/2013 at 11:26

@sotongeoff, I'm so sorry, was my mistake, I fail to notice what you wrote and so I  no answer! Now I understand the distinction. A compost with nutrient for seed sowing and potting plants we can not buy here. We make our own compost to bring out to more than 15 hectars (several smaller areas). The basic of our home-made compost is rice bran (68%), pure dried chicken manure (20%). We add biochar (approx.10-12%, Lichee tree), fish powder (no sea fish, but from the lakes in our area) and/or rock minerals. All ingredients are fermented / activated with EM. 10 days we need to fill up the char with all the nutrients (avert turning back-effect). All 10-14 days the compost (nearly a compost-fertilizer) is ready for us or for sale. In the end of December I bring out to 1.5 ha (new field) this compost by my hands...Chicken shit was my Christmas Gift. Greetings, ThaiGer

P.S.: about char look at my website

...you a lucky man...many pot-plants we have to plant out, after every season change (Oct.and June) we give them wormtea in the first 3 years, it's realy a good alternative to "normal" invigoration of flower plants...greetings, ThaiGer.

I think it's to late now, but encourage new growth of it by cutting flowering stems down to the ground. Flowers usually appear late springthrough the summer.Best luck, ThaiGer

shrubs in wet side

plants in wet side ,Look at this two pages, many people have this problem, but is not ta real problem I think. We live in flood and drought in one year, we have to accept this fact and react to this if necessary. Best luck, ThaiGer.

Sorry, when I ask you something. You talk about what compost you'll use/buy. For me compost mean: "Compost is the end product of the decomposition of organic matter, includes garden waste, kitchen scraps, manure, leaves, grass clippings, straw...". You will buy pure organic matter? Or you mean a mix of soil and compost, maybe with cow manure. This I want to know. Thanks, ThaiGer.

Fungus on juneberry tree

 I think using the "chemical hammer" is not a good method and NOT preventve kind. Please lookhere (about Neem). The liquid soap (Detergent) is to hold strong and long time the extract on the top side and the underside of the leaves.The recipe you can divide 10 or 100 for 1 or 10 liters. For Neem-kernel you can ask in drug store(?). We have very good results with selfmade NKE. Greetings,ThaiGer.

Hello, I agree dovefromabove about non-chemical protection, milk solution is very good idea. This problem you'll find everywhere in the world. If available try Neem Oil (extract) also. You can have a look HERE too. Greetings, ThaiGer.
