SO DO I PUT THE MANURE RIGHT ON THE GRASS?
You can also create a mulch out of it or just place it directly on the soil. Rabbit manure doesn't break down right away so the nutrients get slowly released into the soil. It also doesn't smell, so if you have the correct manure-dirt ratio, you shouldn't get overwhelmed by the stench.
"Rabbit manure has been nicknamed a natural "steroid" for plants. It contains 3.7% nitrogen, 1.3% phosphorus, 3.5% calcium and contains trace elements of magnesium, boron, zinc, sulfur, cooper and cobalt. Making for a highly nutritious fertilizer." (Cross Creek Farm Family Blog)
In 1936, the US Senate was presented with the results of a scientific study it had commissioned on the mineral content of our food. The results demonstrated that many human ills could be attributed to the fact that American soil no longer provided the plants with the mineral elements which are so essential to human nourishment and nutritional health. So where does that leave us? If even living food, like raw carrots and cabbage, can no longer supply us with the nutrients we need, where can we turn?
Our North American soil today has a nutrition depletion level of 85% from 10 years ago. It's only getting worse. Not only can rabbit manure increase the health of your plants, but if you are considering starting a garden, rabbit manure can be a vital addition and also increase the nutrients and minerals in the food you're growing.
During this previous summer, we let my rabbits play out in the front yard nearly every day for hours. They would nibble on the grass, get all their energy out, do little binkies and sprints, and fertilize our yard at the same time! Our grass has never been greener or prettier!
