AN EVERYDAY item you might already have in your pantry can help you get healthier, more beautiful plants in your garden.
On TikTok, gardening enthusiast Megan London explained there’s a super cheap item that may already have — or that you can find at any grocery store — that will work wonders for your garden if you’re on a budget.
“You’re probably like, what could that be? Powdered milk,” she revealed in a recent video.
Holding up a bag of Walmart’s Great Value brand instant nonfat dry milk, Megan told viewers, “Let me show you what it’s packed full of,” before showing that the common pantry item has plenty of calcium and potassium, both essential for healthy plants.
“Just mix a little in with the soil a few inches in, cover it, and leave,” she said.
For another similar tip, experts at The Spruce say you can also use regular milk in your garden by diluting it with water and putting it in a spray bottle to spritz on plant leaves.
