Horsetail is rich in silica (SiO2). It strengthens disease resistance. It is used against fungal diseases, especially rust, black spots on roses, moniliosis, peach and mold curls.
The production process:
Pick up green parts of the plants, chop them to smaller pieces and put them in a container – use plastic/glass/ceramic container, never use metal one.
1/3 to ½ of the container should be filled up with the plants.
Add rainwater so that the mixture level remains about 10 cm below the container top. Bear in mind that during the fermentation process the organic fertilizer increases its volume when foaming.
Cover the container with cloth or mesh so that no animals fall inside. Put the container in a sunny place. Mix it every day.
Process of fermentation is ready when bubbles are no longerreleased. Organic fertilizer is ready within 10 – 20 days.
Dilute the fertilizer in ratio 1:10 before the usage.
Use the organic fertilizer during the blooming and fruit formation. Do not use the organic fertilizer when the fruit or vegetable ripens.
Water fruit trees/shrubs once per season, no later than at the end of July.
