Re: Minimal prep of biochar for gardens #garden

Why don't you simply add the biochar you have to your soil and fertilize it as you prefer to counteract any potential loss of available plant nutrients from the soil solution?

Hope that helps,


Nobody is saying:     Put fertilizer (inorganic or manure) onto  the soil when you put in some biochar to counter-act the loss of nutrients from the soil into the char in that first year.


Not sure what I will do.
