brews for garden plants

There are a lot of fertilizers and soil additives that you can buy commercially. They can be helpful in your garden’s production but some can also be dangerous to your plants, to your health, to your family’s health, and to animals.

You can boost your garden’s productivity without using any of these fertilizers and soil additives; you can use your kitchen scraps or waste from Mother Nature. Using these can help your plants bloom and grow.

Here are 7 recipes that you can easily and cheaply make and that are helpful in your garden.

Boiled Eggs Water

After boiling eggs, do not throw the water that you used. Allow the water to cool down before using it in your garden. When you boil eggs there will be traces of calcium that will be left behind in the water.

Boiled Vegetable Water

Do not throw the water that you used in boiling your vegetables. When the water is already cool, you can now pour it into your garden soil, around your plants. When you boil your vegetables, there are nutrients that will be left in the water.

Compost Tea

Compost tea is easy to make. All you need is a shovelful of compost, place it in a bucket. Fill the bucket with water and let it sit for 3 to 7 days. Compost tea is also rich in nutrients.

Garden Scraps

Collect garden scraps such as grass clippings, leaves, twigs, and dead flower heads. Place them in a bucket or container, fill the container with water and allow it to steep for a week or so. Make sure to cover the container. After that, strain and use the water in your garden. Add the garden scraps in your compost pile.

You can also combine your garden scraps and kitchen scraps.

Kitchen Scraps

Place your vegetable peelings in a bucket and then fill it with boiling water. Let it sit overnight up to two days. After that, strain and use the water to your plants. Do not use your meat or dairy kitchen scraps.

Manure Tea

Scoop a shovelful of well-rotted manure and put it in a 5-gallon bucket. Fill the bucket with water, and then let it sit overnight. Apply the solution directly into your garden soil. Make sure that it will not come in contact with the leaves or stems of your plants. Apply manure every 2 to 3 weeks.

Seaweeds or Kelp

You can collect seaweeds from the beach, you’re lucky if you live near a beach or an ocean. Collect seaweeds that are near cold-water only, rinse them well so that the salt will be removed and then put them in a barrel or any container. Fill the container with water and then cover it with a lid. Let it brew for 2 months.

Dilute with water and make a spray. Spray it to your plants to speed up the production of fruit and flower.

Why do you have to buy inorganic and unsafe fertilizers commercially, when you can make your own brews? Homemade brews are very helpful to your garden’s production and they are also completely safe to use.
