About Gardening: Natural Fertilizer
by Mira Dessy
This fertilizer recipe was passed along to me as a suggestion to make and use for my houseplants and in the outside flower beds. In your honest opinion, is this okay to use? I was not planning on using this each time I used a fertilizer but wondered if it would be beneficial to use some of the time.
Monthly Fertilizer for flowers and plants:
- 1 gal. warm water
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. epsom salts
- 1/2 tsp. household ammonia
Mix together in a gallon jug. The lady that sent it in said it came from her brother who used to work in a flower shop and it is what they used.
Thank you & Blessings,
I have looked into my information and was unable to find anything about using epsom salts AND ammonia as a fertilizer. So I am going to throw the question out to our readers. Anyone have any experience mixing these two and then fertilizing with it?
