Simon Tetlow, deputy head gardener at the famous Tatton Park Gardens, shows how to make liquid manure tea fertiliser, aka muck tea in this video. The beauty of this method is that you get all the benefits of a liquid chemical fertiliser, organically.
Making Muck Tea Plant Feed
As well as using rotted manure, this method can be used to produce a quick plant tonic from nettles. Whilst nettles are a real nuisance weed, the plant is actually wonderful for making compost or tea. All those stolen minerals from the ground.
If you cut down a patch of nettles 3 times in the year, they will weaken and die. It’s slow for clearing but it is effective and provides free fertiliser.
Finally, you can make comfrey tea – there’s a lot of information on the main site about comfrey here: Growing & Using Comfrey Includes a a downloadable, printable leaflet on comfrey’s history, uses, cultivation etc.
