Did you know that seedlings often die from bacterial and fungal infections before they have a chance to grow and mature? Here is a simple tip for saving your seedlings . . .
Make a light chamomile tea, allow it to cool thoroughly and use it to water your young seedlings. The chamomile works to prevent bacterial and fungal infections in young plants and helps prevent them from damping off.
Damping off, if you're not familiar, is when young seedlings suddenly die off without warning and is usually caused by a soil borne fungus.
Chamomile can be purchased at health food stores, in the tea aisle of your favorite supermarket or online at amazon
