Sure, you can make your own concoction and it will be cheaper, but Howard Garret makes it so easy!  Spraying with ‘Garrett Juice’ is one of the things I try to do regularly in my garden and the roses and veggies especially love it!  It is an incredible folliar feed.  I went for a couple of years not being able to tend to my garden quite as diligently and I could definitely tell the difference when I didn’t use it!

You can either buy Garrett Juice (my favorite option when I can afford it) or you can make it yourself.  Here is the recipe from his “Texas Organic Gardening” book.

  • Compost tea – label directions or if homemade, use 1 cup/gallon
  • Seaweed – 1 ounce/gallon
  • Molasses – 1 ounce/gallon
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – 1 ounce/gallon

I sometimes even add Garlic/Pepper tea to mine if the bugs are particularly bad to give it a little ‘punch’.  I put the concoction in a sprayer and spray all foliage well.  If you are making your own, be sure to strain your teas well or you may end up with a clogged sprayer.  And then be sure to clean your sprayer well after use.
