Plant in Pots


You can grow many plants indoors; Potted plants make indoor gardening possible so you can grow vegetables and herbs year round, regardless of the weather.

Planting seeds: Mix 1 part ChickenFuel to 3 parts soil and put the mixture in your pots, about 1 inch short of the brim. Plant your seeds in the pots just as you would using any soil. In addition, use one 6 ounce bag of ChickenFuel to make 5 gallons of tea that can be applied weekly to your potted plants.

Planting seedlings with roots: Plants that already have roots can handle more compost, so your potting mixture can be 1 part ChickenFuel to 2 parts soil. Use one 6 ounce bag of ChickenFuel to make 5 gallons of tea that can be applied twice a week to your potted plants.

Top Soil

Top Dressing

Sprinkle ChickenFuel in a layer on top of your soil to nourish plants. For potted plants, you may have to remove a little soil to make room. Water will carry nutrients down into the soil.
