The problem with the ‘artificial’ fertilisers is that they’re made using by-products of the petrochemical industry and all the pollution etc that causes ... yet more ethical conundrums. 🤔

There is a difference between Vegan and Vegetarian.In my understanding Veganism is a way of life in which you would avoid using anything remotely connected to animal life - plastic shoes instead of leather, man made fibre instead of wool, etc. Thinking about it, I don't know whether that would/should include animal manure ?Vegetarianism is usually a dietary regime where consumption of meat is avoided. Oddly enough many vegetarians will include fish and fish products in their diet and will also use animal by products.I'm guessing it really depends on whether your are Vegan or Vegetarian and how strict you want to be.Hopefully someone else may have the answer to your dilemma.
