Florist warned about the risks of nitrogen fertilizers

According to Zhashkova, chemical nitrogen fertilizers, which provide a spacious crop shortly, threaten deadly diseases. "Nitrogen accumulates in products. An excess amount of nitrogen leads increasing in cancer if we consume it in food. In addition, they degrade the soil," the country house expert warned. "Instead of chemical nitrogen, use manure, compost, or humus, which already contains enough nitrogen." 

She also recommended making a green fertilizer: collect weeds, dandelions, nettles, and coltsfoot, chop in a bucket, and pour water. It must be no more than a third of the water. To minimize the odor, the expert suggested adding a banana peel. 

"Green manure is fermented from five days to a week, must be closed tightly, put in heat and shade. You can periodically stir one time in three or four days. It would be ready when it is diluted in a ratio of 1 to 20, at least 1 to 10. Never use this in pure form. It must be diluted," she concluded.
