First you need to prepare a fertilizing solution. For this you will need onion peels. Put it together and pour boiling water over it. Let it sit for several hours, then strain the solution and leave it overnight.
The next day you can start watering the plants. To do this, dilute the resulting solution with water in a ratio of 1:5. That is, for one part of the solution there are five parts of water. This will avoid waterlogging of the soil and burning of plant roots.
Water the plants with the resulting solution every week, instead of regular watering with water. Onion solution contains many beneficial microelements such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and others, which are necessary for healthy plant growth.
In addition, onion solution is also an excellent pest control agent. Its smell repels many insects such as aphids and ants. This way, you can not only feed your plants, but also protect them from pests.
Don’t forget that feeding onions is not the only way to feed plants. You can also use other organic fertilizers such as compost or humus. It is important to choose a feeding method that is suitable for your plant and not to overdo it with the amount of fertilizer.
Now you know how to make fertilizer for watering onion plants. This simple and affordable method will help you keep your plants healthy and beautiful. Do not forget to fertilize regularly and monitor the condition of the plants.
