Alfalfa pellets make a great slow release fertilizer that also adds texture to the soil.

I have lots of alfalfa..Would you give the tea only in the growing season? Would fall/winter be ok?

Hey Anna,

Since you are in Texas (zone 8a) I would say you could use the tea in the fall/winter. Here in Cantonment, FL (zone 8b) the person I share a garden/hybridizing area with (their place) uses the tea year round, even in the winter. I choose not to use the tea just because there is soooo many daylilies around here to pour it around. I like the ease of throwing down lots of alfalfa pellets and I would think the worms get more benefit from them that way. I know the tea feeds the soil microbes so it really is a win-win no matter which way the alfalfa is used.

I would prefer to throw handfuls as well, but I am worried my dogs would like that to!
