Household Hints - Gardening - Tea for Your Plants

A few different people have told me this tip, so I had to make sure to share it! Apparently, if you've got some leftover regular black tea in the teapot - you might want to give your garden a bit of a boost by watering the tea right over the plants! One lady told me that her mother always used to do this, and they could trace the pattern of where her mom through out the leftover tea, because those plants always thrived the most.

So, enjoy that cup of tea, and then share a little with your plants!

Indeed, I believe the tip is valid.

My grandma used to tell me the same tips as well. Not just black tea, but green Chinese tea will do as well. There're some natural ingredients deep inside the tea leaves which inject extra enzyme to the roots.
