These Homemade Organic Fertilizer recipes are easy to make, inexpensive, and great for your plants! If you want to learn how to make an organic fertilizer, scroll down for some organic fertilizer recipes. These are homemade organic fertilizer recipes that I have come across, and decided to share with my readers.

My  Favorite Organic Rose Fertilizer

Alfalfa Tea

  • Fill a trash barrel (or pail) with rain water.
  • Pour in 12 cups of Alfalfa meal, Alfalfa Pellets, or a few bales of Alfalfa Hay.
  • Stir it up, and leave for one day
  • Add one cup of Epsom salts
  • Stir the batch each day, for a week

When ready to use, you will see a foam on top. You will also notice a foul odor. (Don't worry, this is suppose to happen, it might smell bad, but it works good!) To use this homemade organic fertilizer, dip your watering can into the mix, (skim from the top, leave the settled sludge on the bottom) Pour around base of rose bush, (1 gallon per bush)

Coffee Fertilizer

This organic way to fertilizer is simple to make. Do you drink coffee? Well, instead of throwing away those used coffee grounds, save them until you get about a 1/2 pound. Fill a 5 gallon pail or bucket with warm water. Dump in those used coffee grounds, stir up the mixture, and let sit in the sun for a day, and water your rose plants with it.

If you are not a coffee drinker, ask a relative, friend, or neighbor, you're sure to find someone willing to "recycle" those coffee grounds by donating them to you.(Maybe you could reward them with a nice bouquet of roses!)

Homemade Organic Fertilizer

Mix equal amounts of alfalfa meal, bone meal, fish meal, gypsum, and green sand. Pull back the mulch, water the ground around the plants, then sprinkle this mixture around the base of the plants. Replace the mulch, and water well. This makes a favorite organic fertilizer that gives your rose plants a nice boost!

  • Mushroom manure (28 liter bag)
  • one cup Lime
  • one cup any organic plant food
  • one cup worm casting
  • one cup crushed egg shells

Mix together, and fertilize as usual.
