Best organic fertiliser

Don't fancy eating anything grown on Bob Flowerdew's plot.    He recycles EVERYTHING. 

no amount of fertiliser can make up for bulky organic matter tho.  Plants will survive well enough if soil is healthy.

Hi everyone .  

Cold ....didn't get too much sun after all   But it was pleasant walking down to the  beach 

I think we may well return to "dig for victory" in a sense.  Talking to someone today and with increasing food shortages and prices we concluded we would be growing more of our own produce.  Over recent years I have reduced my veg patch to accommodate more ornamentals but over the next few years I may reverse that.  

Got a complimentary meal plus refund for my poor service yesterday .  Always pay to complain if you are genuinely treated unsatisfactorily. .

I use fish blood and bone fertliser for just about everything I grow.  I think it's prob the best.  I have used other similar fertilisers....Humber fish for example, pelleted chicken manure too

What do the forum members use?  

I think it sensible to ring the changes now and then so will probably use something different next season.
