My grandmother had told me that back in the day, they never had Miracle Gro or any other type of fast growing fertilizer. She always had the most amazing flowers.

She had taken a empty gallon container (plastic/milk container), covered the bottom with ammonia, then filled the rest with water. Then she shook it and watered her plants.

Last year, I had tried this on my dying geraniums. Within 2 days, they perked up. Then produced buds everlasting until October. I live in Michigan and they went through frost!

I have found that for green plants like ivy, about every 2 - 4 weeks, I add one drop of ammonia to the watering; that's one drop per plant. The green plants, not flowering ones, like the nitrogen. It makes them green and pretty. I got the idea from Jerry Baker to use it as a fertilizer.

Please help. For fertilizing purposes, how can I tell if a dish washing liquid is soap or detergent? Also, what kind of ammonia should I use for the same purpose?
Thank you very much.
