Protect Plants From Various Diseases
From The Store To The Garden
Every amateur gardener knows that plants need the right minerals to grow properly. In this case, agricultural fertilizers come to the rescue. We usually buy them in easy-to-use packets and apply them very quickly. However, there is one problem with agricultural fertilizers. They are very concentrated and there is a great risk that we will use too much of them and simply overfertilize the plants. In addition, vegetables accumulate in the body same chemicals, which later find their way into our bodies. To prevent this from happening it is worth thinking in the use of natural fertilizers. They are easily made from ordinary commercial baker’s yeast.
Another way to use old yeast is as a soil amendment. Incorporating it directly into your garden soil helps improve soil structure, water retention, and nutrient availability. Before planting, mix a small amount of old yeast into the soil around your plants or add it to the planting hole. This will introduce beneficial microorganisms and enzymes, supporting plant growth and overall soil health.
Old yeast can also be used as a foliar spray to promote plant health. Prepare a homemade yeast foliar spray by diluting old yeast in water and applying it to the leaves of your plants. This can help strengthen their defenses and boost disease resistance, keeping your garden plants healthier and more resilient.
When reusing old yeast, it’s important to store it properly to maintain its effectiveness. Keep it in an airtight container or sealed bag in a cool, dry place. Avoid using old yeast that has expired or shows signs of spoilage.
Remember to use organic and non-GMO yeast for optimal garden health. Avoid excessive use of yeast in your garden, as too much can disrupt the natural balance of microorganisms in the soil.
By repurposing old yeast, you can reduce waste and provide valuable nutrients and beneficial microorganisms to your garden. Give it a try and see the positive impact it has on your plants. Don’t let that old yeast go to waste—put it to good use in your garden and enjoy the benefits of a thriving, healthy garden space.
