One gardener had bunnies. I used to say rabbits but I've evolved into my second childhood.
They keep them for their poop, or black gold as it is known in these parts.
This is what the nice lady told me
Because rabbit manure is dry,odourless and in pellet form it is suitable for direct use in the garden.
It is considered a cold manure so there is no threat of burning plants and roots.
It can be applied any time of the year and helps give your plants a boost during the growing season or as a storehouse of nutrients when applied in the late fall and winter.
Use it as a top-dressing, mulch around plants, bury in the ground under transplants or just work into the soil right from the rabbit.
In your compost
The straw, urine, poop mix from their bedding works wonders in the compost as it accelerates heating big time.
Put some in your worm composter, the worms love it.
She makes tea with it but I didn't get the instructions
I looked this bit up
Rabbit manure contains nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and many minerals, lots of micro-nutrients, plus many other beneficial trace elements such as calcium, magnesium, boron, zinc, manganese, sulphur, copper, and cobalt.
N – P – K VALUES – N- 2.4 P- 1.4 K- 0.6
just for comparison horse manure-N- 0.7 P-0.3 K-0.6
Many people around here use bunny poop directly on their gardens and seem not to suffer any ill effects. I'm just telling you what I'm planning. Do the research and make your own decision.
Yes, bunnies, or garden employees, as the bunny lady likes to say, are on our horizon,
