What Lawn Clippings Can Do For Your Potted Plants
Lawn clippings offer several benefits to potted plants. First, they act as a natural mulch, helping to retain moisture in the soil and prevent weed growth.
You can also add them to the topsoil of your potted plants. As the clippings decompose, they release essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium into the soil.
All these nutrients are vital to the growth of plants and promote healthy foliage, root development, and overall plant vigor.
Furthermore, the decomposition process enriches the soil with organic matter, improving its structure, moisture-holding capacity, and nutrient-retention ability.
Additionally, lawn clippings can be steeped in water to create a liquid fertilizer. This diluted solution can then serve as a nutrient-rich supplement for your
potted plants.
