    Comfry feed (free fertiliser)

    At Don’t Crop Me Now we tend to stick to a combination of homemade compost or composted animal manure (chicken/horse) as a way of feeding our crops through a ‘No Dig’ process. If you can feed the soil to maintain a healthy soil ecosystem, you rarely need to worry about fertilising plants! However, when plants are grown in pots, particularly those for a short season, the growing medium hasn’t really had time to establish a biological balance. Therefore, we do add a balanced organic fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone to boost our container grown potatoes and use a high potash feed on flowering plants such as chillies, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines. A simple high potash liquid feed can be made from the plant comfry.
