Tips for using beer in the garden. Post your ideas.
Have any flat or stale beer? Pour it into your garden. Your plants will love you for it. They love yeast.
If you have slugs, put a saucer of beer out for them. They crawl in, drink and die. And I do'nt feel the least bit sorry for the slimey things!
So do the slugs. Try adding a bunch of salt to the beer and it will attract and then kill the slugs.
I read of a homemade fertilizer made with very small amounts of beer, household ammonia, whiskey, I believe, plus maybe some more stuff. It was in an Atlanta paper 10 or more years ago. I haven't been able to locate it, and I wouldn't want to try it out without having the proper measurements.
I think the recipe calls for 1 cup of beer, 2 T whiskey, 2 T fish emulsion, 1 T corn syrup, 2 T ammonia, 2 T dishwashing liquid and warm water in watering can with warm water, use every 3 weeks.
