Here are a few little known fertilizer options that are readily available…
- Epsom salt is actually a fantastic fertilizer. It contains 10% magnesium and 13% sulfer. It’s a proactive fertilizer that can be applied in the granular form it is most often purchased or you can dissolve it in water and spray it on leaves. Most effective on tomatoes, assorted peppers and roses. Just mix 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt to 4.5 litres of water.
- Kelp/seaweed can be found offered in liquid, powder, or pellet form. Kelp adds valuable micronutrients, growth hormones, and vitamins that can help increase growth and production, reduce the plant stress from drought, and increase frost tolerance. Apply it to the soil or as a spray to the foliage
- Blood meal is the powdered blood from slaughtered animals. It contains about 14 percent nitrogen and many micronutrients. Leafy plants, such as lettuce, grow well with this fertilizer. It also apparently repels deer, but may attract dogs and cats…if you love them, why not.
