Ok who uses it?

Other than the fact it smells like cat food, have you had good success? When do you use it? Someone suggested when I moved my seedlings from the small peat pods to their larger 4inch container.

Suggestions?

Now there is a question.... when?

Yes, I use it (But I'm a Scandinavian who landed in the PNW, we grow everything, even children with fish)

I have spent about 5 years doing mostly container gardening with a few remnants of traditional French intensive plus a little herb-tea garden and a berry garden on the side.

I did not use fish juice on my transplants. I wanted them to toughen up, not make fast, tender growth. I also did not use it in the gardens. I had a lot of other good veggie chow going on in the gardens. Actually I fed the soil that fed the plants so I didn't need fish juice there. In containers you feed the plants.

When container gardening I used it about once every three to four weeks in spring (I wanted tougher plants in the spring rather then lotsa tender new growth just in case we had a hard late spring frosts) In the heat of the summer I used it about once a week, then cut it off in late August hoping everybody would get a little tougher for fall.

I hadn't thought about using it in SFG but hummmm. What are you planning?

Hi,
I have used fish emulsion on my baby plants and in my garden. When my seeds have developed the first true leaves I give them a little drink of fish juice at 50% strength. (Water first then fish juice.) I try to do it every other week. By week 6 or 8 when I am getting ready to plant my garden I am up to full strength fish juice. I have my plants started in sterile seed starting mix or jiffy pellets, they really to not get any nutritian from the growth medium. If the baby plants have out grown their space, then they go into newspaper pots and get the same feeding routine. During the summer I just feed the plants once a month for three or four months. If a plant looks sad, it gets a little compost and a bit of fish juice. Last year I had a great harvest, especially the tomatoes. I am still working on my first bottle of fish juice, as it is a concentrate. A word of warning. Do not mix up a batch at full strength and store it under the kitchen sink for two weeks. I had to febreeze my greenhouse, lights and fan. It was pretty amazing.')" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Fish emulsion Icon_rolleyes

Honestly you guys, I don't know. it was just something I either read or was suggested.

My seedlings are also in a seed started (basically peat/vermic) starter, either pod or the mix (since I've moved some).


Right now my cole seedlings are all about 6-8 inches tall ( a little leggy but not bad), my peppers range from about 3 inches-6 inches, my onion seedlings range from just poking to 10 inches, tomatoes are still germinating, I also have some lettuce started.

Im going to be doing corn also that I was going to give a fishy drink too. Container corn as well as a modified "row" garden (basically i mix in left over mels mix into existing soil as well as some alfalfa rabbit food then plant about 4/12-18 inch square).

IDK, just throwing out another idea/question Fish emulsion Icon_cool

Sure thing. It's good to do a search for previous threads on a topic of interest that you may want to add to.
