Throw your plants a compost tea party this spring ! Compost tea can be applied as a foliar spray or soil drench. It is easy to make at home with just a few components and can be customized to your plants' needs. Compost tea takes all the goodness from your compost and makes it even better. Compost tea is easy to make and we have a great video showing you step by step how to make it. There are so many versions of compost tea recipes but you can “brew” your own version. The basic components of compost tea include water, compost (or you can use arctic humus or worm castings) and a tea catalyst. Additions can be made to your tea–liquid kelp or maxicrop, liquid fish or water soluble bat guano are great to supplement your compost tea. Any method you use, your plants will love it!
