Spring Garden Tips
Tea Time For Your Plants
Make your own compost tea by placing compost in a permeable bag and soaking in water until the water turns brown. An occasional stirring (once a day) is recommended for this passive method. Use this liquid fertilizer on houseplants, container gardens or anywhere a liquid fertilizer is preferred.
