Increasingly more people recognize that organic gardening methods are most beneficial for our plants. Therefore, we decided to present some fertilizers recipes, simple and natural, you can prepare at home.
Why choosing homemade recipes?
Most fertilizers and vitamins necessary for our plants are found in stores. But what do we do when we want to our flowers to grow healthy and to ensure that they will be colorful and full of life? The wise choice is to make our own flower fertilizer.
One of the best plant fertilizers is ash. This banal dust is rich in potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and sulfur. Moreover, the ash acts like a soil disinfectant. This fertilizer can be mixed with soil or put in the water we use for watering houseplants.
