Chamomile tea

When you’re starting seeds indoors, don’t you hate to see the tops of seedlings suddenly fall over because the stem has rotted? This condition is called damping off, and it quickly kills seedlings.

Before that happens, protect your plants by taking a look in your pantry. Chamomile tea contains sulfur, which fights the fungus that causes damping off.

HOW?TO?USE IT — Soak the tea bag in a quart of cool water for 15 to 20 minutes. (A used tea bag will work just fine, too.) Mist the solution over seedlings and young plants, or use it to water flats from the bottom. Do this two or three times a week until the seedlings are planted out in the garden.
