How to use:

1. Dilution: Start by diluting the Black Strap Molasses with water. A common ratio is 1 to 3 tablespoons of molasses per gallon (3.8 liters) of water, but you can adjust the concentration based on your specific needs.

2. Mixing: Mix the molasses and water thoroughly until they are well combined. You can use a bucket or watering can for this purpose.

3. Application Methods:

  • Soil Drench: Pour the diluted molasses mixture directly onto the soil around the base of your plants. This allows the molasses to reach the root zone, stimulating microbial activity in the soil and providing nutrients to the plants.
  • Foliar Spray: For foliar feeding, use a spray bottle to apply the diluted molasses solution to the leaves of your plants. Ensure thorough coverage, but avoid spraying during the hottest part of the day to prevent leaf burn.
  • Compost Pile: Incorporate diluted molasses into your compost pile to accelerate decomposition and enhance the quality of your compost.

4. Frequency: Apply Black Strap Molasses every two to four weeks during the growing season, or as needed based on the condition of your plants and soil. Avoid overuse, as excessive application can lead to imbalances in your garden ecosystem.

5. Monitor: Keep an eye on your plants for improvements in growth, vigor, and overall health. You should notice increased fruit and vegetable yields, healthier foliage, and a thriving garden environment.

6. Environmental Considerations: Remember that Black Strap Molasses is safe for humans, animals, insects, plants, and soil life. Its use promotes sustainability by reducing the need for synthetic nitrogen amendments and fostering CO2-absorbing foliage growth.
