Looking for a natural way to fertilize inpatients and flowering potted plants.
I am a fan of Miracle Grow but I did find a recipe for homemade Miracle Grow that you might consider!

I use pond water. They love it.
I always use knox gelatin. The unflavored gelatin in the bright orange box. Add 1 packet to 1/4 cup of warm water to dissolve & then put in a 1 qt of water to mix. Water plants monthly. A natural way to fertilize.
Hi Kathy. Mix one Tablespoon of water in a gallon of water. Pour it where the plant meets the soil. This puts enzymes in the soil and plants thrive with it. Repeat every two weeks. Good luck Kathy. Be well.
You mix one tablespoon of what in a gallon of water?? Thx!
Thanks all, this is great information!
Hi Kathy. It's Cindy again. I'm so glad that you caught my mistake. Because this works so well and I wanted to share it with you. Mix one tablespoon of Epson Salt in a gallon of water. Sprinkle it on the soil. I make two gallons at a time. I put this on everything. My gardens look great. Again, sorry about the mistake.
Thank you I will try this!
