Putting Chicken Tea to the test at the Villas… with Sunflowers!

Sunflowers

This afternoon I planted fourteen sunflower plants, seven down either side of a raised bed, 1.2 metres apart, both with a southerly aspect.

Chicken Tea

The plan is to irrigate the plants on the left hand side with rainwater and the plants on the right hand side with chicken tea. At the end of the summer I shall measure each sunflower and calculate the average height achieved in each row.

By doing so I shall be able to evaluate how effective chicken tea is and how much of a difference it makes… I shall also observe whether the size of the flowers appears to have been effected.
