I do not often promote garden products, the only exceptions I can think of are the CobraHead Weeder, created in Wisconsin by-the-way, and the Flip Flop Flowerpot system, which I used in my garden in Ohio.
It is no secret that I am a native of Wisconsin, from Milwaukee, and for most of my growing up and my own gardening years, I have supported the use of Milorganite products. I still do.
But out here in Scottsdale, Arizona, I was looking for a regional, family-owned product made in the west that I could use in my small container and in-ground outside and indoor garden. Last fall, Annie Haven was kind enough to send me a sample box of tea bags to try as this year’s growing season got underway in the low desert.
The organic dried moo poo tea is made up in palm-sized burlap bags tied with rough string. Each bag is convenient for hanging over the edge of a gallon-sized watering can to steep. I am able to soak it to any strength I want, determined by the plants and time of year. I like that flexibility.
Many plants in the desert require only a little fertilizer, a weak treatment. On the other hand, I love that I can grow annual flowers in December/January/February, as you can see stronger treatments of Moo Poo Tea did its duty. In mixed containers, where there may be succulents side by side with tropicals, which in my gardens in Wisconsin or Ohio were houseplants, I am confident using organic Moo Poo Tea in my Arizona garden whatever the plants.
Authentic Haven Natural Brew Moo Poo Tea in hand-sized bags is a good tool to Stay Gardening.
