Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Hi Walter,I would like a little more about fertilizing with "chicken pellets". Can you find me a few details about the methodology, quantity conditions, time, etc.,thanxMH
MH,chicken pellets is an euphemism for dried chicken shit. That's all I can say. It has to be old and dry. Otherwise you take a handful an throw it at the surface of a bonsai pot. I use a couple of bags for 500 trees. That's all I can say about it. Go to your garden center. This is very practical horticulture in Europe. It works very well because bonsai are just normal plants.Walter
Mr. Pall,what can you tell me about cow dung? Is it as uncomplicated as chicken pellets are?Thank you,Yannick
Yannick,I think you might as well take the cow thing. It smells better.Walter
Okay, thank you for answering my question ;-)Yannick
Walter & Yannick,Cow dung is a very common thing in the tropics. It is widely used and is a very common source of organic fertilizer.But yes, it has to be fully sun dried before applying to the trees. If used fresh, it might even kill the tree.Shaukat
