Again the same question, I know that there are topics like this, but I have a bit different question.
I used a granular chicken manure and a bit of cow manure on my container plants (tomatoes, cucumbers). Tomatoes are looking OK, no problems with them. But cucumbers are wilting on sun an have a little dry spots, the spots are really small and have I would say normal color, otherwise it's ok. (maybe the color of the leaves is a lot green but I am not sure, I don't have many experience whith this)
So I don't know if I did not over do it, the tomatoes look like they can handle more (or they are just not over fertilized?) But the question I have is : If the vegetables would be over fertilized, is it safe for eating? Aren't there any health issues? I am trying to grow the organic way.
I added the fertilizer few months ago so I would expect that the plants would absorb it (I tried an experiment, I really over fertilized a flower on purpose, the slats have built up, flower was always wilted, but after some time it over came it and is ok now) but the cucumber is still the same. I did not see any pests that could be responsible for that.
Also could anyone tell me please what is the best amount to add in a container for this type of fertilizer and what is already too much? There is no exact amount on the product itself for container for chicken manure, only for normal garden there's a description - about the cow manure (used only on 2 containers-cucumber, raspberry-raspberry actually stopped growing and died) there is specified amount for containers, which is 1:20 up to 1:10. The container with cucumber has about 18 gallons of soil, so even if I consider 1:20 I get an amount which I did not gave there for sure. On other cucumber I used chicken manure and is also wilting on sun, although it has no dry spots and color of leaves also look ok to me.
Thank you for your answer.
