Fresh Compost Tea by Sweetland Garden Supply
Feed Your Plants and Soil the Right Way
Our custom-made compost tea is an aerated microbial solution full of beneficial bacteria and fungi that your plants and soil will LOVE. The organisms in the tea are derived from quality organic compost, dark rich humus, and worm castings. We combine these ingredients with food to feed the microorganisms and then aerate it well to make this amazing life-enhancing plant elixir that boosts plant health and productivity!
Our high-quality, vitality-boosting compost tea is available from May to September.
How Does Compost Tea Work?
Bacteria, fungi, nematodes, countless microorganisms and your plants create a symbiotic relationship with one another. Plants exude proteins and sugars which attract the right microbes for whatever the plant needs at that moment. The microorganisms consume those exudates and then release nutrients that are directly usable for your plants. These many miraculous microscopic microorganisms actually FEED your plants!
