One of the best things you can get to help your garden grow better doesn’t cost anything.
Garden enthusiast Megan London says “the best” she uses for her plants is free, easily accessible, and a miracle cure for growth.
“If you’ve ever grown anything or gardened, or are just starting out, I guarantee one thing you’ve noticed is that your plants grow after it rains. A whole lot.
“And from my experience of 25 years of gardening, watering them with just rainwater is hands down the best thing you can ever do for your plants.
“Let me show you how to do this, because you know what? In my 25 years of gardening, that’s the weirdest tool there is, honey,” she said, holding up her hand.
“These hands have been with me for 36 years, that’s it. I don’t have a magical tool for it,” she said.
When she knows it’s going to rain, she puts out barrels and buckets to catch the rainwater.
She also makes sure to weigh them down with stones at the bottom so the bins and buckets don’t get blown away when it gets windy before they’ve collected enough water.
Megan also revealed that she is in the process of converting an above ground pool into a tub to collect rainwater.
Meanwhile, with buckets and containers, this is cheap and easy.
Megan also quashed possible fears that the water would sit around and allow bacteria or algae to grow and become smelly.
“I’m going to use the water before it ever gets a chance to smell, stagnate or anything,” she said.
Other experts also agree that rainwater is best for plants.
Carol Savonen, a field biologist and environmental educator, wrote for the Salem Statesman Journal that she also collects rainwater in a bucket.
“Freshly collected rainwater is of the highest purity for plant irrigation. It’s easy to collect, at least during the rainy season,” she wrote.
She said rainwater also contains traces of nitrates, which are necessary for plant growth.
