Milk is a rich source of vitamins D,A and B complex, minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc.
Next, we show you a homemade trick to accelerate the growth of plants and keep pests away in a natural and effective way.
Milk has many benefits like high levels of calcium. Cold milk is a better option for fertilizer, as it’s more nutritious that warm milk. It is also ideal for plants with varieties such as courgettes, tomatoes and peppers.
To make a non-toxic plant fertilizer, use a clean water bottle and mix equal parts milk and water together. Place the cap of the bottle over the opening on one side of the mixture and use it to water your plants.
According to some experts, milk is a foliar fertilizer that can make leaves and fruits larger.
The milk can be used as a pesticide on mites, aphids, and other small parasites.
Milk contains sugar, and some insects are unable to feed on it. However, the amount of sugar in milk is what makes it difficult for insects to feed on.
Against plant fungi
Add diluted milk to leaves before spraying them. Milk helps prevent fungus and mold growth on plants as it can also be used as an additive to other natural pesticides with the purpose of facilitating their absorption.
For garden tools
We can use milk to clean tools and utensils just like we do with chlorine. Sometimes people use chemicals to disinfect them, but milk does the same job without any harmful effects on humans or the environment.
When using pruning shears, consider soaking them in milk. This will help prevent tools from rusting and also disinfect them naturally.
Warnings on the use of milk in the garden
Use milk every now and then to maintain the garden. Using too much can weaken the plants, leaving them susceptible to disease while causing a bad odor.
