Good soil means everything for a gardener looking to raise healthy, happy plants. While there are certainly countless chemicals and egg expensive solutions, there are actually many simple things you can do to boost nutrients and maintain a successful garden.
Curious to learn more? In this video I’ll show you 6 ways to make any type of soil enrich with nutrients naturally after which you’ll never feel the need to buy those expensive chemical fertilizers.
1. Raw Egg
The solution for a thriving plant may be as simple as planting a raw egg. As you prepare your pots with soil, simply include a single raw egg at the bottom. Over time, the egg will decompose and works as a natural fertilizer for the seedlings.
You can also use crushed eggshells which work just as good as whole egg.
Eggshell has calcium, nitrogen and phosphoric acid which make them an ideal choice for garden use.
So next time you boil or fry an egg don’t throw away the egg shell but instead
Recycle them to grow seedlings. When the seedling is ready to be planted outside, place the shell and seedling directly in the ground. The eggshell will decompose over time and help fertilize the soil.
2. Banana Skins
Bananas contain a number of nutrients including potassium, phosphate, sulfur, calcium, magnesium and sodium. All of these things can help promote healthy growing for plants. best way to effectively use banana peels is to cut them up into small pieces so that they can decompose faster. This will result in organic matter that helps establish rich soil
If you have a fireplace, you’ll love this free method for raising pH levels.
you simply scatter the ash around the soil as a way to lower acidic levels. This will make it easier to grow a fresh crop.
Allowing leaves to rot over a garden during winter will provide nutrients for the soil to prepare it for the next growing season. The leaves work to pull the organic matter back down into the soil making it dark and rich.
5. Epsom Salt
Epsom salts are especially good for soil. Low pH levels are usually an indication of a magnesium imbalance. To boost pH levels in the soil, dilute Epsom salt with water and spray on the plants. The vegetation will soak up the welcomed nutrients.
6.Use Compost Regularly
While using bits and pieces of natural matter can be helpful, combining many pieces of compost will only go one step further toward enriching your soil.
There are a number of benefits of using natural compost regularly
