Was blood meal and bone meal; Now Dogs

Post  waway on Tue Jul 28, 2009 3:43 pm

guys i need any inputs on using blood meal and/or bone meal directly to plants. is this a good way of acquiring nitrogen and phosphorus using organic matter? any adverse effect to the soil in the long run?

anyone who have tried these things pls share your experiences.

I use bone meal spring and late summer for roots; don't use blood meal.

I sprinkle it over the surface then scratch it in.

I use both bone meal and blood meal in the making of my fert cakes. I use bone meal mixed in my soil when I repot in spring to get things started.

One part bone meal
Two parts cottonseed meal

Sprinkle lightly on bonsai soil once a month during growing season.

- Recipe of Mas Imazumi

This recipe is to be used in addition to regular fertilizer.

Bone Meal & Blood Meal

Not if you have dogs. They will lick it right up & possibly damage your trees.

Hi Iris,
Are you talking about blood/bone meal or bone/cottonseed meal? My red heeler would practically climb onto my benches for homemade fertilizer cakes but never "bats an eye" for the bone/cottonseed sprinkled onto the top soil of my bonsai. Dogs go for the fish emulsion but I 've never heard of any going for the blood meal ?!

One of the reasons I started using seaweed and Miracle Gro was because it was about the only thing my old black labrador didn't like the taste of. She too would happily climb on to benches to reach fertiliser cake (I blamed the birds until I caught her in flagrante), and she would eat hoof, horn, fish, bonemeal and all sorts of other substances from wherever I put it in the garden. She also once ate her way through a sizeable quantity of cocoa shell mulch which, we were told later, should have killed her. She obviously hadn't read that report. She also liked blood products, both in the plant food sense and when she once antagonised my hubby by stealing his slice of Black Pudding off his breakfast plate. Our current Golden Retriever is a great big softie coward and has never so much as sniffed at plant food since I shouted at him two years ago. I've kind of stuck to the Miracle Gro and Seaweed out of habit. But it does get good results in my climate, so why fix it if it ain't broke?

You forgot the apostrophe too, but who's counting... Razz

My 'boys' also like most organic fertilizers so I must stick with soluble products like MiracleGro, Peter's, etc.

Since we're braggin' about our dogs,they say that dogs with ears that point up are smarter, now I'm not saying that my Australian Cattle dog is smarter but Diamond knows what's important ..... as watch dog for the garden and catching frisbees !! But not necessarily in that order. Over the years I have lived with all kinds of dogs and when 18 of my best bonsai were stolen in 2000, I researched dogs that would be loyal , protective and wouldn't bite the mailman. She does sound ferocious and like the german shepherd has a full body "mohawk" when alarmed!

Here's a picture of her after play .... as she cools off !

Whoa! Hold on! Or should I say "Sit and stay, boy!" I merely responded to Iris and Norma and, you'll note, there were no pictures of my ferocious burglar repeller here.

But now that I'v been provoked: introducing Buddy in a typical pose - a dog so ferocious he let an intruder break and enter our house a few weeks ago (as we lay in our beds) then proceded to show him round the entire house without so much as a bark or a whimper. The old seedcake eater would at least have had him cornered, if only to search his pockets for a biscuit.



Actually, if we take Norma's point that it's only dogs with ears that point upward that are ferocious, then I reckon Bud is really quite a bruiser when he's fast asleep lying on his back.

And anyway, Mr T, who was it started an entire thread about pets?

It sure is. She was spayed Wednesday. Here she is today.



She doesn't know she's supposed to be hurting.

Actually, that's a jumper for a 3-month-old human baby. It's ONLY on because we don't want that scallywag biting at her stitches. It'll be gone in a week or two.

Bogey's a cutie.

I amended the posts title to avoid confusion. So now I feel a bit better about posting mine.

Here are Lucy and Tess. Lucy is an Irish Jack Russel and she rules the pack!
