    Hi Charles, what do you suggest for me to give my fruits( gooseberries, black current and red current bushes ) which I have recently acquired in the renting of a new house which for some reason have been planted through a plastic permeable membrane then topped with approx four inches of bark chippings ( mostly wood!).
    My uncle used to pick the hard tops of the cowpats and submerge them in water and leave to stand and then used this liqueur on his Rhubarb and had great results- this was back in the 1970,s as they couldn’t afford fertilisers . A little smelly but effective.
    Is cow or horse dung liqueur a good viable solution rather than sulphate of potash.?

    Regards

    Mick

     Hi Mick
    I would emulate your uncles methods although with whatever ingredients you have. It is frustrating when soil is so covered like that but at least there should be no weeds. Liquid feeding takes more time and effort than feeding soil with compost and manure.
