What Is Compost Tea?
Compost tea is a liquid fertilizer that you can make at home, right in your backyard. It’s a method in which the nutrients and good bacteria that are present in regular compost are infused into the water that you add to it.
Much like regular tea, this is a way for water to absorb what’s present in compost. Just remember not to drink it, and use it in your garden to fertilize your plants.
Making your own compost tea is a great alternative to a traditional, store-bought fertilizer. If you want an organic garden, compost tea is a great way to do that. As an added benefit, compost tea is free to make.
Most of the time, you already have all the supplies you might need at home. If you don’t have everything you need to get started, making compost tea will still be less expensive than other fertilizers you can buy because the ingredients are very simple and inexpensive.
Fertilizing your garden by using compost tea is great for growing healthy plants. The nutrients added by the compost are natural, organic, and free of any harmful chemicals.
Your plants will grow faster and bigger than they would without the benefits of compost tea.
