Rabbit manure

Rabbit manure

A friend gave us a couple of bags of rabbit manure to experiment with. (Thanks, Dennis!) Anna was ecstatic.

Some gardeners report that rabbit pellets are cool enough to use close to plants pre-composting. But if urine is mixed in and you can smell ammonia, even rabbit manure can burn your plants.

We plan to topdress our new strawberry beds with manure, but to keep the pellets several inches away from young roots.
