Ordinary kitchen foil can provide potatoes with the necessary substances for growth

Growing potatoes is considered one of the most crucial tasks for any gardener, as this starchy vegetable forms the basis for winter provisions. That's why caring for this plant has generated numerous tips and tricks. Some of them may appear unusual.

However, the foil life hack has proven to be effective over time. OBOZREVATEL will guide you on how to significantly increase potato yields using this technique.

This method is applied when planting potatoes in open ground. Foil contains elements like aluminum, copper, iron, and silicon, essential for the plant's robust growth and increased resistance to diseases and pests. These substances are gradually released from the foil, making it act as a slow-release fertilizer.

Before planting the potatoes, create small, fairly dense balls from ordinary kitchen foil. Place one such ball in each hole along with the potato.

Apart from nourishing the plant as it grows, the foil also contributes to loosening the soil around it. This improves air access to the potato roots, creating a more favorable environment for the tubers.
