I need help from my fellow gardeners. This is our first spring with 4 full grown girls. They roam free for 2-4 hours each day in our small city backyard. I have plants and fruit trees that need fertilizer. I am stumped how to accomplish this without fencing off all the plants as the chickens will dig up all the granules and probably eat them. Does anyone have another strategy that has worked or am I stuck fencing? Available liquid fertilzer (eg Miracle Grow) not an option as the N-P-K is not apporiate for the plants in questions. Most liquids are too high in nitrogen. Maybe someone knows of a brand I'm not familiar with?
