How To Make Compost Tea Compost tea may not be made from tea leaves, but it is very rich in nutrients that plants thrive on and removes the need for commercial fertilizers. It can also be considered a method of organic pest control since the healthier a plant is, the more likely it is to be pest and disease free.
How to Grow Corn Corn planted in soils cooler than 55 degrees fails to germinate or has very poor germination. Direct-sow only after night temperatures are consistently in the 50s. Plant in blocks of at least 3 rows, at least 3 feet long apiece, to ensure best pollination. Hand-pollinate by gently shaking plants toward one another if you cannot devote this much space. Water 2 inches per week.
