The graphic below illustrates easy, natural solutions to common plant deficiencies.

 

Having plants is a great way to breathe life into your home. Having a garden is even better because you can fill your yard with beautiful color and your home with home-grown produce or flowers!

Gardening does take some effort and requires giving some TLC (tender loving care) to your entire garden, including your soil! The nutrients in the soil get used up over time and needs to be replenished with fertilizers and plant food.

Store-bought fertilizers can be costly over time and usually have chemicals and filler ingredients that aren’t the best for your plants or your family. An easy and cheaper solution is to make your own plant food with the things you have around the house!

ProFlowers put together an in-depth guide to making your own homemade plant food to help keep all of your plants happy and healthy. Below is their recommended plant food recipe you can use regularly for your plants.

They also have a guide to recognizing specific plant deficiencies and natural solutions to fix them.

For example, did you know you can use eggshells in your soil to help your plants grow?

Take a look at some of their tips so you can save money on gardening and save you, your family and your garden from unnecessary chemicals and ingredients.
