A few weeks ago I reported in another post that I was experimenting with ‘Fumier De Cheval’ in the veg garden – in other words, horse manure!
I just thought I’d post an update on the results of the experiment, which seems to be going very well!
I planted 4 pumpkin plants directly into bags of composted manure (it was bought from the supermarket and all broken down nicely, no nasty smells!) I left another pumpkin plant and a squash plant in their original pots and just gave them a top dressing of the fumier.
That was a month ago, and I’m pleased to say that the pumpkins are thriving! Here’s the photo evidence:
So today I’ve bought some more bags of ‘Fumier De Cheval’ and I’m going to move my courgette plants into them, as they need a bit of a boost at the moment!
