A homemade fertilizer to increase raspberry harvest!

Do you love raspberries and feel that no summer is complete without juicy raspberries? No wonder, raspberries taste great. That is if you do not buy raspberries in supermarkets as the aroma and taste may not always be what you want and they are usually very expensive. You should try growing your own raspberries because it is not difficult at all. Raspberries need a lot of water and fertilizer. The good news is that you can make a special fertilizer at home using few ingredients.

Raspberries need nutrients

Yes indeed, but you could also give them proteins and vitamins. Just like humans. You do not need to buy a fertilizer in the store because you can make one at home. All you need is few ingredients. You will need 100 grams of fresh yeast, or 30 grams of dried yeast. It does not really matter. In addition, you will need 100 grams of sugar and water. Here is a simple recipe.



Simple and quick

Dissolve yeast in water and mixed thoroughly. Place the mixture in a warm place, ideally on a windowsill, and let it sit there for 2 days. Do not forget to stir the mixture regularly to prevent lumps. When done, dilute the mixture 1:10, and use it to water your raspberries. Each shrub should get 5 litres.

Wood ash

Raspberries also need nitrogen and you need wood ash for that. Dissolve 600 grams of wood ash in 10 litres of water and water raspberries with it.
