DIY Organic Liquid Fertilizer Mix Posted on 04 Sep 20:43 , 3 comments

A customer recently asked about using our Mary's Organic Plant Food in the garden on growing plants. Granular and powdered plant food is usually easier to apply MIXED into soil. However, making your own liquid, organic plant food is easy!

First, liquid feeding is usually easier with established plants. Second, liquid feed can give your plants a quicker "boost" if they need fast relief.


At Mary's Heirloom Seeds we offer a unique selection of Organic Soil Amendments. These can be combined to best suit your plant nutrient needs.

Let's get started!

For this recipe, I'm using 4 different organic soil Amendments.

Mary's Organic Plant Food


  • A complete plant food with all 15 essential nutrients
  • Originally developed for professional gardeners
  • Complex blend of natural organics provide complete and balanced feeding of all 15 nutrients
  • Environmentally safe
  • No sludges, hazardous or toxic ingredients


AZOMITE *Very important for healthy root growth*


  • Give Plants the Vital Minerals They need to Thrive
  • Great soil additive for all plants
Azomite rock dust is a naturally mined volcanic rock composed of over 70 minerals and trace elements that are essential for optimal plant health. The rock formation in Utah from which Azomite is mined was formed when volcanic ash merged with sea water. This mixture of volcanic ash and sea water created a unique source of trace minerals and elements that moist soils are void of. Just like humans, plants require many minerals to reach peak health and vigor. Re-mineralize your soil with Azomite and your plants will thank you and reward you! 


ALFALFA MEAL
Derived from leguminous perennial alfalfa plant used for pasture and cover crop. Primary benefit of this pleasant smelling meal is increasing organic matter, although it is also a valuable plant-derived fertilizer.
  • NPK analysis is 2.8-0.29-2.4
  • Contains trace minerals and triaconatol
  • Excellent addition to the compost pile for nitrogen content and absorbency
  • Roses respond especially well to alfalfa meal
  • WSDA Certified Organic Alfalfa Meal


Organic Calcium supplement-Oyster Shell
Carefully blended from organic nutrients in the ideal proportions without the use of synthetics, growth stimulants or low quality fillers
Calcium is a component of plant cell walls, and it’s needed for enzyme formation and nitrate uptake. Organic calcium can also be used to help neutralize excessively acidic soils, which is especially important when you’re growing green, leafy vegetables like lettuce and spinach, or cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.
Highest quality ingredients help provide an effective and environmentally friendly approach to plant care, crop fertilization and soil management.
