Sustainable fertilization with wool
The secret of the wool
Sheep are often used as landscape maintainer. Now they can make themselves useful even in the garden - not as lawnmowers, but with their wool. Wool sheep must be sheared every spring, so that their dense fur does not become felted. This means once a year, usually from April until mid- June, sheep are being sheared. Depending on breed and age, you get approximately three and a half kilogram of wool per animal.
The environmentally-friendly/eco-friendly, renewable raw material provides a lot of growth-promoting nutrients for plants, such as nitrogen, potassium and phosphate. Wool has also the ability of water storage, otherwise the sheep would be wet to the skin in the rain.
COMPO BIO long term fertilizer with sheep wool
In the COMPO BIO long-term fertilizer, the wool plays a main role by being pressed with other natural components into pellets with immediate and long-term action with also water storage and soil-improving capacity. The water storage effect ensures an improved water supply to the plants during dry phases and the swelling effect scarifies the ground. The roots of your plants are better supplied with oxygen and waterlogging is avoided. The nutrients from the wool are continuously released to the plants over a long time period. Finally earthworms decompose the wool to humus. In spring the fertilizer pellets are incorporated into the soil or directly given into the plant hole.
In addition to a universal-variant, six special sheep wool fertilizers are available: for roses, rhododendrons, conifers, berries, tomatoes and for the raised bed. By the way, the wool for the COMPO products is only of European origin. This avoids long transport routes and supports local sheep farms – to promote the domestic natural landscape and cultivated land.
