You don’t have to buy any fancy and expensive fertilizers from market , just add these few home scraps and DIY which will thrive your kitchen garden. Lets start !
I will always suggest for organic gardening as it is helpful for your garden as well as our mother earth.
If you have a lawn then cut the excess grass and use the dried one as mulch for your other plants.
We all think that weeds are harmful for our plant but pluck those weeds as they are high in Nitrogen and don’t directly add them to garden as they may grow again. Keep them soaked in a bucket of water for about a week and when the weeds die the water will turn muddy and brown , this is when the water is to be added to the garden.
We can use all sorts of manure of cow , goat , horse depending on availability. Never add wet manure to garden which will attract insects . Always dry the manure and add the same to plants / garden.
potassium-rich banana peels are excellent for plants like tomatoes, peppers or flowers. Banana peels also contain calcium, which prevents blossom end rot in tomatoes. The manganese in banana peels aids photosynthesis, while the sodium in banana peels helps water flow between cells.
Eggshells are made almost entirely of calcium carbonate, which our bodies need for healthy bones and muscles. Our plants need it too. And you can deliver it to them through compost, soil or by making “eggshell tea.” … You also can put crumbled shells in the soil before you place plants or seeds.
To use coffee grounds as a fertiliser just sprinkle some on top layer of soil. Coffee grounds help in attracting worms and also help in decreasing heavy metal concentrations in the soil.
Blood meal is rich in nitrogen and help in thriving a plant. Blood meal can be easily obtained from slaughter house which can be diluted with water and added to plants. Or simply you can add washed water from meat brought to house.
Fish meal organic fertilizer is an excellent source of nitrogen, phosphorus and is recommended for vegetable gardens, flower beds and all types of outdoor plants, trees & shrubs.
