Organics for conifers - is it possible or not?
Unlike garden crops, which respond well to spreading manure, representatives of the coniferous group do not like it very much. Manure contains a large amount of nitrogen, which provokes the active formation of shoots. Most of them, by the arrival of winter, simply will not have time to mature and die, and the rest may turn yellow from excess nitrogen, which will lead to a loss of decoration.
The exception is rotted compost, it is a bit like natural, forest, soil. In the spring after loosening the near-wellbore circles, they should sprinkle the earth around the coniferous plantations.
