Nitrogen loss due to woody compost
I'm developing a .4 acre garden in Afton. I tilled in a fair amount of compost purchased from Gertens. The vegetable plants are not doing well. Gertens compost has lots of wood mulch as a main ingredient. I've read that decomposing wood sucks up a lot of nitrogen, taking it away from plants. Is this true? I have some Fall lawn fertilizer, 30-0-4 with added sulfur and iron. Could I till some of that into the soil this fall to bring N levels up? I have 15 blueberry plants that require acidic soil. Could I use it on those plants this fall?
