Fish fertilizer is the foulest smelling fertilizer that you can use in your garden. It also performs miracles on plants that are close to death and need help.
I used it on my water logged tomato plants this spring and everyone I gave a plant to reported that the tomato plants ended up doing well and are producing lots of tomatoes.
I also used fish fertilizer on some espalier pear trees that I planted last spring. They are looking healthy despite the hot summer and their humble beginning. I bought them at Big Lots for $15 each.
Sounds great ? Yes, but the smell of fish fertilizer can make you pass out. Think pig farms and you start to understand what I am talking about. Not the same, but fish fertilizer can be just as bad.
I was very careful not to get it on my clothing or touch it with my hands and I would still end up smelling like dead fish when I was finished fertilizing my plants.
My dogs were overly fascinated by it. My beagle got a hold of it, unscrewed the lid somehow, and tried to eat it. I am really glad she didn't think to roll in the stuff.
