I have a homemade DIY frugal super easy flower fertilizer recipe for you today.
Why pay for expensive plant fertilzers when you can make your own? If you have a flowers in containers or the garden this easy plant food recipe is a must make. The impatiens above are four years old. I trim every winter and feed in the spring with my homemade frugal flower fertilizer and look at it as of early June.
The calibrachoa superbells hanging pot was given to me on Mother's day. Look how many blooms are on it now compared to when it came home from the nursery. See the before and after.
Homemade Liquid Flower Food
In a two gallon watering can, mix two tablespoons of molasses and one tablespoon of epsom salt. Mix with a stick or wooden spoon and water. Feed weekly for containers and every two weeks for garden flowers. When watering the garden plants with this mixture, feed well and follow with a nice soak from the hose to get the fertilizer down to the roots.
I have used this on tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers as well.
