    Hi everyone,

    DP works in the meat dept. of a supermarket & by the end of the day he has heaps & heaps of ‘bone dust’ that comes from using the bandsaw(sp?), he wants me to ask all you knowledgable people whether we could use it for fertaliser on the vegies, & if not, what COULD we use if for?

    Cheers!

    I would think it would be a bit whiffy putting it straight on the garden in summer. Even tho it’s called ‘dust’, it’s more like greasy gritty stuff. Flies would love it.

    Better to process it through chooks or other birds if you have them.

    I would imagine it might have too much fat in it to use straight in the garden … Pity though as it would contain much the same nutrients as blood and bone. YOu could cook it (boil it up with some water), skim it and then use the juices and residue in the compost heap. Or feed it sparingly to the hens and recycle it into the compost heap that way … How annoying …

    You could probably use it if you bury it.

    Knew a landscaper who used to get heaps of it for round his pawpaw trees. He grew beautiful big tasty pawpaws.

    I would suggest you put some potash with it .to make a complete fert. & mulch over .
