compost killed plants?
i put just a bit of VC on some tomato plants, around the base of them, as well as some jalapeno plants. it seemed to burn them severely, or mess them up some other way. either way, they were in bad shape, tho all but one returned to heatlth eventually.
any ideas why this might have happened?
this bin has been sitting in my backyard for probably 3 years and none of the compost has ever been used. could it be too rich with Nitrogen or something like that?
i put a decent bit of citrus in it over the years as well, but certainly not more than say 10% of their food intake (other than cardboad). could this have affected it?
much appreciation for any help, because I want to finally use this stuff now, and although i plan on testing it out on some grass first, i would still love some input.
