This simple, DIY liquid fertilizer is a super-easy way to give your garden plants a nutritious boost!
Making your own compost is a great way to provide nutrients for your organic garden, but it usually takes a long time, and it can be a lot of work to spread all that compost around – especially if you have a big garden.
Gardeners like David over at The Grow Network rely on heavily on simple, homemade DIY liquid fertilizer like that shown in the video below. Not only are liquid fertilizers very easy to make, they are also much faster than regular cold composting methods, and can be ready to feed to your garden in just a few weeks – rather than months. You can feed your plants using a hose for larger gardens, or watering cans for a smaller or container garden setup.
Watch the video below for instructions on making your own nutritious liquid fertilizer for your garden, and then feel free to make up your own recipe! You can use just about any type of organic matter – kitchen scraps, manure, urine, weeds, rotting fruit, grass clippings, etc. – whatever you have on hand. Just add a variety of ingredients to your barrel (or bucket, for a small batch), add water, cover, and let it stew! In just a few weeks, you’ll have a rich, nutritious tea to feed to your plants.
