Weird Garden Remedies That Actually Works Like Crazy

Organic gardeners will often go to any length to keep their plants happy and safe, but without the use of harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides. 
Here are 7 weird garden remedies that sounds crazy but Actually works.

1.Weed tea as fertilizer.
Brew a weed tea fertilizer to take sweet revenge on the weeds that rob your garden plants of nutrients. Cut up the weeds and dunk them in a tub of water kept in the sun. In a few days, a nitrogen-rich green tea will be ready. Use it as soil fertilizer or foliar spray.

2.Water from boiling eggs.
All you need to do is reserve the water used after boiling-eggs – when the eggs boil, calcium leaches into the water, making excellent feed for your plants. You could also do the same with water from boiled vegetables. Make sure you let it cool completely before using. 

3.Vinegar as weed killer
Most organic gardeners do not like to use herbicides in their garden, but they may have second thoughts when their gardens are run over by weeds. Vinegar is an environment-friendly alternative to chemical weed killers.
Pour some vinegar into a spray bottle and drench the weeds with it. Do this on a hot, sunny day for best results. The acid will scorch the weeds and kill-them in a few days. Water the area afterward to remove excess acidity or sprinkle baking-soda on soil to neutralize it.

4.Adjust pH with wood ash and coffee grounds.
When you grow different types of plants in your garden, their PH needs may vary.
Wood ash from wood burning stoves and fireplaces can alkalinize the soil in your asparagus patch and vegetable beds growing broccoli, beans, and beet. Coffee grounds can be used around ericaceous plants like roses, azaleas, and rhododendrons.

5.Let Neem protect your plants from pests.
Neem-oil extracted from the seeds of the Neem tree is the best way to keep your edibles safe from pests. Neem-oil interferes with feeding as well as the development process of the insects, making them incapable of proliferating.
To make a spray, add a few drops of any detergent to a quart of warm water and then mix in a teaspoonful of Neem-oil.  Shake well and spray liberally on the foliage.

6.Add oyster shells and eggshells to your garden beds.
Crushed shells of oysters and eggs make slow-release fertilizers that will keep your garden-soil sweet and healthy. Crush them with a rolling-pin to make the pieces as small as you can. The calcium-carbonate in the shells makes the soil-alkaline, so use it around plants that love alkaline soil.

7.Improve fruit set with Epsom-salt.
If you find your pepper plants dropping fruit, turn to Epsom-salt. You will see a definite improvement in fruit set almost immediately. To make a foliar spray of Epsom-salt, mix 2 tablespoons in a quart bottle of warm-water and shake well to dissolve. Spray the pepper plants once every two weeks from the time they start flowering until the fruiting is over.
