The Q&A Archives: what is green tea and how is it made?

Question: I find mention of using a mixture called GREEN TEA as a liquid fertilizer, but nowhere do I find how to make this mixture.

Answer: There are two organic fertilizers I'm familiar with: one is seaweed extract, which I suppose you could make a tea out of, and the second is manure tea. To make manure tea, simply place a shovel or two of manure in a large container (5 gallon bucket) filled with water, and after a week or so, strain out the manure. To make the straining process a little easier, you can tie the manure in a burlap bag before placing it in the water (like a giant tea bag).

Best wishes with your garden!
