Will duck water burn plants if you use it to water your garden?
I use duck water to water my flowers, and I have been since I planted them. I have annuals and roses. They are growing very nicely!
Duck pool water is not like chicken poo that needs composted. It's like a high nutrient tea for your plants. Flowers, grass, and veggies will all love it.
Good! Now I won't feel so bad about how often I have to change their water! Yuck!
I use to obsess over their water, trying to keep it clean. I finally realized its hopeless because all they have to do is take one drink and it's right back dirty again.
Lol, to true. But if I let it go longer than 3 days they won't really use it. Picky ducks!
Duck pond water is all I use in the greenhouse.
I'll let the picture speak for me:
@ billw -
Glad to know I'm doing the right thing too then! I change the duck pool every 3 days and use the water for my garden.
Recycling into the gardens is my plan as well but… is there an easier way than baling it out with a bucket? I'm new at this too, and I discovered that about 3 days is the limit -- both for them to enjoy and then I began to pick up a bad smell. They were exstatic when I filled it with fresh water -- but within half an hour, it was no longer sparkling. Oh, well. The garden needs the water, they are so much fun to watch when the water is fresh and they dive and splash around in it, and well, I guess I need the exercise as well. Ducks sure do change one's life!
