This month Joyce Russell shows just how easy and cost effective it is to set up liquid feeds for your fruit and veg

Liquid feeds are a terrific aid to growing healthy fruit and vegetables. What’s more, they are easy to make and they cost very little. The principle is simple: soak a nutrient-rich material in water for a few days, then draw off and dilute some of the liquid to use as a spray, or to water round the roots of plants in your garden.

The cool contents of a teapot make a good liquid feed, as does well-diluted urine. But if you want to make larger quantities of plant-based feed, you need to invest in a large bin with a lid. To make the process simpler again, buy a tap and fit it to the bin so it is simple to draw off a little liquid feed every time you need it.
