Tip of the Week: Apple Cider
Posted on November 28 2016
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week, we’re giving you a new purpose to all that old apple cider you have in the refrigerator. Apple cider, whether hot or cold, is always a great fall staple. However, the shelf-life of this delicious drink is not very long, as it will perish within a few weeks. Instead of dumping it right down the drain, you can repurpose your spoiling apple cider into a delicious vitamin boost for your garden. Simply take the apple cider (whether spoiled or not) and pour it over the roots of your plants, especially wisteria. Pouring apple cider over wisteria roots will give it a vitamin and mineral boost, making your favorite plant last that much longer in the days to come. In addition, apples make for great additions to your compost pile as they are an optimal source of nutrients ideal for strong growth in your plants. Feel free to cover them in sawdust or leaves to make sure that no other critters take them away from your pile. Or better yet, pour your old apple cider into the pile, and watch as they add a great deal of nutrients to your compost.
