Grass clippings can be used to create food for the plants in liquid form. Do this by mixing grass clippings with water, at a ratio of 1:10 by weight. As a top tip, place the grass clippings into a pair of tights, so the liquid can be wrung out from the grass at the end of the process. Place the tights in a container and add the water. Once the water has been added, cover the top with a lid and leave for 3 days. After 3 days, compress the tights to drain out any excess liquid and use the liquid fertiliser as soon as possible.
Before using the liquid fertiliser on beds, borders, and containers it’s important to dilute the mixture so as to not harm the plants. The trick is to dilute the mixture until it is see-through or light in colour.
As with any fertiliser, don’t overuse it. Wait around 2 weeks before thinking of adding more, and the strength and frequency of the feed may differ depending on the individual plant. With this added nutrient enhancement, it’ll lead to healthier and more glorious flowers and foliage.
