Compost tea is easily made by soaking or steeping compost in
water. The resulting compost tea is used for either a foliar
application (sprayed on the leaves) or applied to the soil.
We all know that compost is a wonderful addition to soil and
helps our gardens grow better. You and your garden plants can
benefit even more by using compost tea.
By using compost tea to replace chemical-based fertilizers,
pesticides, and fungicides, you can garden safer and be more
protective of the environment. Compost tea:
- Increases plant growth
- Provides nutrients to plants and soil
- Provides beneficial organisms
- Helps to supress diseases
