Pet Safe Fertilizer For Gardens
Fertilizer is used by most homeowners to keep their gardens looking their best. Fertilizer feeds the garden and encourages it to grow lush, green blades. However, most commercial fertilizers are made from chemicals that are harmful to pets. Thankfully, there are some pet safe fertilizer for gardens that gardeners can use. Here are some of them. Seaweed is rich in nitrogen. You can buy it ground up but it’s more common as a spray-on liquid. Fish emulsion, while fish emulsion is a great fertilizer option, remember that this is a quick-release fertilizer and it can burn plants if you use too much. Pets are likely to find the smell very appealing and might try to dig up your garden plants. Grass Clippings, you can use 20 percent less nitrogen fertilizer by leaving grass clippings on your lawn. For this to work, you may have to mow more frequently. Long clippings can do more harm than good. Manure, this is a tricky one because pets may try to eat it. Composting for three or four months removes much of the smell and makes it safer for pets and the gardens. Be aware that horse manure may contain weed seeds.
Compost, compost is one of the best fertilizers for gardens and if you make your own it’s free. You can also use it on the lawn, but it takes quite a bit to provide enough nitrogen for lawn grass. Bone meal and blood meal are natural products that may not harm your pets, but he or she will find the taste and smell very appealing. Avoid them to prevent digging and rolling in the garden.
