Benefits of Rabbit Poop for Your Garden

If you are a gardener, you may be familiar with the benefits of composting for healthier plants. However, have you considered using rabbit poop as a fertilizer for your garden? Here are some of the benefits of using "bunny berries" for your garden.

Rabbit Poop fertilizer

  1. High in nutrients: Bunny berries are high in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are essential nutrients for plant growth. In addition, rabbit poop also contains a small amount of calcium, magnesium, and sulfur.

  2. Easy to use: Unlike other animal manure, bunny berries are small and dry, making it easy to spread and incorporate into the soil. They are a cold compost!

  3. Low in odor: Bunny berries have a mild odor compared to other animal manure, which makes it more pleasant to use in your garden.

  4. Natural pesticide: Bunny berries contains natural deterrents to pests and diseases, which can help protect your plants.

  5. Sustainable: Rabbits are small and have a low impact on the environment, making their manure a sustainable alternative to other fertilizers.

  6. Promotes soil health: Bunny berries contain microbes that help to break down organic matter in the soil, improving soil structure and fertility.

To use rabbit poop in your garden, simply spread a thin layer on top of the soil and gently incorporate it into the soil. Or if you are potting up some plants, just mix some in with your potting soil. It is that easy!

You could also soak them in water to make "Bunny Berry Tea". We typically do a 1:4 ratio. You will need 1 gallon of bunny berries, a mesh bag, 5 gallon bucket and some water.

  1. Put 1 gallon bag of rabbit poop in a mesh bag.

  2. Fill a 5 gallon bucket with water.

  3. Place your mesh bag in there and allow it to steep in warm sunshine for 7 days.

  4. Remove your "tea bag" and use it to water your plants and give them a boost of natural fertilizer! (This is really easy if you use a bucket with a spigot in it and a little hose. :-)

Whether you use them straight or make a tea, bunny berries are a great natural and sustainable addition to your garden to make your plants healthier! Maybe throw in a few daisies, pansies or marigolds for your sweet bunny to enjoy too!
