    Having started this year with ‘compost tea’ we are now starting to see subtle changes and improvements on the green.
    Over the last couple of years or so we have followed
    John’s advice from the avidly read Performance Bowling Greens and his other publications, a handy reference (and the occasional very helpful email when I’m unsure of something) A number of things have changed, winter we spent aerating the green more frequently than previously and the green is playing better earlier in the season.

    So this year we have gone down the ‘compost tea’ route. In all honesty, the committee didnt take much persuading, mainly because of the improvements over the last couple of years. Since starting with the compost tea, there have been a few subtle changes, the green is certainly running better, a better colour and consistency of grasses with a definite decrease of the annual POA. We had a few patches that were slow to recover from fusarium, so as John suggested, I was a bit heavy handed with applying the ‘tea’ on these areas. The improvement to those areas is incredible, lush and green, the ‘patches’ healing very quickly.

    Everybody happy, especially the treasurer, knowing how much money we are saving! I’m really pleased with the results, a number of very complimentary remarks from visiting teams add to the feel good factor. Now the weather has settled a bit more and the grass growing better, hopefully I can continue to build on the success so far. Maybe, with any amount of luck, the fusarium might be a bit less this year as a bonus.
