    In Komi, it is possible to harvest good crops from berry-growers. I grow black and red currants, gooseberries, honeysuckle, raspberries. All frost resistant varieties. The plans of the princess, cranberries, cranberries. In addition to strawberries taken from neighbors, I grow small-fruited varieties of Alexandria, Rügen.

    And the repair strawberry did not go with me: we have early frosts. The potential of the variety is not used; all flowers and ovaries die.
    I plant bushes as usual, but in addition to peat and complex mineral fertilizers, I add fish waste to the pit. The bushes respond to them just fine. The difference compared with those bushes under which he did not contribute fish is obvious. Fertilizer is valid for more than one year. This is also a plus.

    By the way, if the bushes are already planted, you can dig the waste around the periphery to a depth of 15-20 cm, 100-150 g per plant. Unpleasant odor is not felt by the fall all overreacts, and the yield increases significantly. After the addition of fish waste, it is advisable to sprinkle this place with tobacco dust or something odorous, so as not to attract dogs. Can be used as top dressing and crushed chicken bones.

    Last year, in the village, I heard the conversation of grandmothers, who once a year in the spring bury a carp or mackerel under each tree. Like, this is the best fertilizer for the garden. It sounds crazy, of course. But grandmothers everything in the garden bloomed, had a great harvest. I would like to know the opinion of a specialist about feeding fish - is it a myth or the truth?

      - A decaying carcass fish in the soil - this is certainly an additional source of organic matter. But it is much easier to make ready organic and mineral fertilizers. As for the good condition of the plants in grandmothers, this is the result not so much of fish, as the result of many years of experience in growing fruit trees, shrubs and flowers.

    I am an avid fisherman, so that the fish at home are always in abundance. Fish bones, too. Until recently, I just threw it away, and now I use it for the benefit of the garden.

    First I dry the bones in the oven, and then grind them in an electric grinder. Fish and bone meal goes well under flowers, berry crops. But it is better to make it in the fall - the substances contained in it become most accessible to plants 6-8 months after application.

    Very fond of this additive solanaceous. If in the fall on the potato, add 100 g to 1 sq. M. m, then for the next year the harvest will grow significantly.
    Recently I found out that fish and bone meal is not only an excellent fertilizer for plants, but also a useful feed supplement for livestock. So now I sprinkle this home-made dressing for animals.

    Sometimes, for the formation of fruits and the formation of full-fledged seeds, plum lacks calcium. This shortage can be filled with ... fish bones! They must be buried under a tree in early autumn. It is important to catch up to the first frost. Fish bones - and no chemistry is needed. Have a good harvest!

    I know that when planting plants it is useful to dig in the fish's head under the root. It contains phosphorus. In what form is better: in fresh or boiled? A head from salted fish can be buried?

      The remains of fish do have a beneficial effect on plants. And not only the head, but also the insides, fins and even scales. It is known that the ancient Indians, planting corn, tried to throw in the holes fish giblets, and the inhabitants of Japan are still preparing some kind of porridge from fish: it is brewed until the bone is completely destroyed, the resulting mass is dried, ground into powder and used as a fertilizer. Applying the remains of fish on your site, you will not feel a characteristic unpleasant smell - the soil reliably neutralizes it.

      Being decomposed in the ground, fish (not important: fresh, salted or boiled) enriches the soil not only with phosphorus, but also with nitrogen and even potassium. Of course, the amount of nutrients in one fish head is small, but at the initial stage of plant growth this is quite enough. If the roots of your flowers are destroyed by a bear, bury a salty fish head next to it. Herring is especially effective in this regard.

    Some readers argue that planting potatoes with fish is harmful, since a cadaveric poison that absorbs vegetables is released. But so far no one has proved this and has not told. Let's say that the poison is excreted, but in a miserable dose, and it does not bring any harm.

    And now another question. Recently, the method of processing potatoes before planting a widely known purchase preparation for the destruction of the Colorado potato beetle has been common. Manufacturers of this poison claim that it does not affect the person who from the summer residents carried out research on this topic?

    I published many articles about planting potatoes with fish, and many criticized me for this method. And I at such planting have achieved the following successes:

    • Completely got rid of the wireworm;
    • increased yield twice;
    • moles bypass the site with a side.
    Hence the conclusion: the wireworm and moles do not respect the smell of fish, and the fish itself becomes a fertilizer, which increases the yield.
    In the Altai Republic, we have a testing center of the Federal State Budgetary Institution "SAS Torno-Al-Ai", which is located in the village of Maima and is engaged in testing feed and soil. I turned to this center for help to identify harmful substances, in particular cadaveric poison, in my potatoes grown with fish.

    The photo shows samples: under No. 1 - potatoes grown with fish; under No. 2 - potatoes grown without fish. The tubers are taken of the same size, of the same variety, plots are nearby. The test report shows what and what is the difference in the test samples. But most importantly, no poisons were found there!

    The protocol is attached. So, dear readers, study carefully this document and decide for yourself whether to plant potatoes with fish or not.
