Strawberry plants grow ‘abundant yields of delicious fruit’ with 2 powerful kitchen items

Strawberries, just like tomatoes, are a popular fruit for households in the UK to grow.

However, for gardeners eagerly anticipating the sweet rewards of homegrown strawberries, achieving abundant yields can sometimes be a challenge.

Despite dedicated care and attention, strawberries may remain small and lacking in flavour.

But with the right homemade fertiliser, you can unlock the potential of your strawberry plants and cultivate a “bountiful harvest of plump, juicy berries”, according to the gardening pros behind the Facebook page HomeGrowers.

They claimed that the key to this “homemade fertiliser for giant strawberries” lies in its “simple yet powerful” ingredients.

All gardeners need for the recipe is fresh or dry yeast, along with sugar and water.

Simply combine them to create a nutrient-rich solution that promotes “vigorous growth” in strawberry plants.

By following the “easy-to-make recipe” and applying the fertiliser, you can provide your strawberries with the essential nutrients they need to thrive.

So how does it work? According to the gardeners, yeast serves as a “powerhouse of nutrients” for plants, supplying vital elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as B vitamins and proteins.

These nutrients are essential for supporting robust growth and fruit development in strawberries.

Additionally, sugar “acts as a catalyst for beneficial soil microorganisms, enhancing soil health and creating an optimal environment for plant growth”.

Yeast and sugar work together to promote “strong, healthy strawberry plants with abundant yields of delicious fruit”.

The fertiliser should first be applied when the plants are still small seedlings. The application should be repeated when plants flower.

The third application should occur when the fruit appears. It is not recommended to use the mix more than three times during the growth season.
