Tree planting isn’t just about planting trees especially for those growing fruit trees. There’s a lot of work that goes into making sure the seedlings grow and bear fruit including making fertiliser.
The Takondwa club were making fertiliser last week using chicken manure, maize bran, ash and soil. They will use this fertiliser in the tubes so the seeds grow strong and healthy. Any leftover fertiliser will spread out amongst the seedlings that were planted out earlier this year.
