I’m a gardening expert – my simple tip make your yard thrive on a budget or even for free

FOR many gardeners, fertilizer is essential for growing lush greens and delicious vegetables, but they aren't all made equal.

An expert has revealed that organic fertilizers are the way to go if you want a thriving garden and shared her tried-and-true products.


The best part is that they are all completely natural and won't cost you more than $10.

Megan London, a pro who shares her gardening tips on her TikTok page, captioned a video: "Organic low cost and free fertilizers I’ve been using for several years."

She said: "I've used a lot of fertilizers over the years…

"But over the years I've realized that a lot of these fertilizers weren't that great for my vegetables or my body."

She went on to say that after researching organic fertilizers, she's realized they work much better in her garden.

"What I found was that they were way more accessible to the plant, to uptake and actually utilize than a lot of these fertilizers I was using early on in my gardening years," London explained.

London then showed off what she calls her "general fertilizer" for her vegetables, Jobe's Vegetable and Tomato Granular Plant Food, which will only cost you $7.

She said:"I use this when my plants are about six to eight weeks old, right when I put them in the garden and I continue to feed them that every three to four weeks depending on the rain until they start to bloom."

Once her plants start to bloom, London moves on to different types of fertilizer: Banana water and bone meal.

According to one of London's blog posts, you can make the free fertilizer by taking three to five banana peels, adding them to a glass jar of water, and letting them sit for three to seven days.

Then, strain the mixture and fill with rainwater and you've got a natural, low-cost fertilizer.

London also wrote that uses Jobe's Bone Meal, which will run you $9.28.

In her post, she wrote: "Every spring while prepping my garden I always add bone meal to the soil.

"Bone meal is high in phosphorous and it is an organic source."

She explained that it may be time to add phosphorous to your garden when your plants start to bloom or if you start to see purple in your plant's leaves.

As a last tip for free fertilizer, London added in her video: "I use loads of rainwater."
