Homemade fertilizers are the BEST for your plants! We can naturally find amazing nutrients in everyday food waste. Here are two of our favourite all-natural plant fertilizers!
Banana Peel Fertilizer
Banana peels are loaded with potassium! Plants that are grown for their fruits or flowers benefit from potassium-rich fertilizers. Give this potassium-rich fertilizer to your fruits, tomatoes, and squash plants!
Tip: Foliage plants like lettuce or spinach don't like it too much.
How to Make Banana Peel Fertilizer:
To unlock the potassium in banana peels, simply place a banana peel in a mason jar full of water and cap it. Let it sit for 3 days and then use it to water your plants.
Egg Shell Fertilizer
Eggshells are full of calcium with a little added potassium. Houseplants and tomatoes love this fertilizer! In fact, almost all plants need calcium.
How to Make Egg Shell Fertilizer:
Save eggshells and boil to remove any remaining yolk. Crush clean eggshells and put in a mason jar full of water. Allow to sit for a week and then use it on your plants. After you've used all your eggshell fertilizer, toss the shells in the compost and use new ones for the next batch.
