    Just seen this (I know, I know, always slow off the mark). Couldn't have voted because I use four and it only accepts the last one clicked.

    1) Comfrey - Rich In Nitrogen, Phosphorus and potash.
    2) Nettle - Best on leafy plants, contains iron, potassium, copper, zinc, magnesium, calcium as well as Nitrogen. (avoid tomatos and roses once they flower).
    3) Worm cast juice. Just lots of everything nice.
    4) Human juice - Yes wee, rich in nitrogen and other trace elements (don't use it if you are on steriods etc).

    One other ingredient that I use which is missed out by a lot of books etc. that tells how to make home made plant feed, is a rusty nail from which I think adds other minerals

    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    Member of the Nutters Club but I think I am just there to make up the numbers
