    I'm curious as to whether rabbit poo has any beneficial nutrients for seedlings and cuttings, as it is a lighter manure..

    I have several rabbits that I feed a lot of my weeds and they do an excellent job!

    Thankyou for any advice.

    Hi Bonsai,

    I purchased this book from Ralph Ritchie, a very old timer who's written a number of interesting books based on his own personal experiences over the past 40+ years (underlined by me). Plan on getting some rabbits myself later this year. = )

    Yes, Rabbit meat has one of the highest sources of protein and rabbit poo is one of the best sources of soil conditioner and fertilizer available. I still see people bypassing rabbit for sheep or horse though... We do tend to stick with what we know from experience.
