Rusty Nails for African Violets


I just read that putting rusty nails in the soil of your African violets will help them bloom beautifully - so I just put some in. Wish me luck.

Insert a few rusty nails into the soil around your African violets. The blossoms will be larger, and brighter in color and more profuse.

This trick works for my clematis, I put the rusty nails in the ground near the roots and the results were stunning.

Rusty Nails for African Violets

My gardenia's leaves were rather pale so I went to a local nursery for help. The saleslady showed me a container of "iron" for $10.00. She opened the jar to show me the contents. I remarked that it looked like particles of rust. She smiled and told me that burying a rusty nail or two in plants that require iron will do exactly the same thing. Saved $10.00 and gardenia leaves are once again dark and shiny. (04/21/2006)
