How to save seedlings: universal fertilization that everyone can do

Spring is coming soon, so the perfect time to transplant seedlings outdoors is just around the corner. But not everything always goes smoothly. Unfortunately, no one is immune to the fact that sometimes seedlings become lethargic, lose color, and begin to wither.

However, there is a universal and extremely simple method of fertilizing that will save your plants. OBOZ.UA has prepared a recipe for a homemade and incredibly effective fertilizer.

Good, strong seedlings are the first step to getting a plentiful and tasty harvest. An important part of caring for them is fertilizing them with fertilizers, but you usually don't want to use chemicals to grow healthy, environmentally friendly homegrown vegetables.

Fortunately, experienced gardeners recommend preparing fertilizer, particularly for pepper, cabbage, and tomato seedlings, from just three ingredients that you can buy at the pharmacy or even find yourself.

How to save seedlings: universal fertilization that everyone can do

Nettle

This plant contains phosphorus, potassium and other trace elements necessary for the growth and strengthening of the root system, as well as a lot of nitrogen, which the plant especially needs in the initial stages of growth and development.

Celandine

For tomato, cabbage and pepper seedlings to develop and produce a good harvest, they need a sufficient amount of iodine. That's why celandine is an essential component of home fertilizer, as it contains a large amount of iodine.

Dandelion

Dandelions contain a large amount of minerals that will help strengthen the immunity of seedlings and protect them from pests.

In order to prepare the fertilizer, take nettle, celandine and dandelion in a 2:1:1 ratio, pour boiling water over the herbs and let the mixture brew for about two hours. Then you need to dilute the strong broth with clean water at room temperature in a ratio of 1:5 and water the seedlings with this liquid once a week.
