Weed-Tea

Posted: 26/09/2013 at 08:32

Appreciate your reponses.  I have made my weed tea but another question has now arisen.  Should I have cut off the dirt-riden roots from the green weed?  My tea is looking rather like chocolate than an Earl Grey!  Although it is now too late to change it, I shall have to see it through as it is but for my next batch (Springtime) would you recommend that I disregard the roots using only the green weed?  Or is this normal and with time it will eventually turn into that 'Earl Grey' tea? (Joking, of course)

I have just deweeded my lawn and have a few kilos of weeds and my father suggested making a smelly concotion of something called weed-tea which, in a matter of weeks, can be used to fertilize the garden getting rid of those exy purchased fertilizers.  Can I use a 60 lit. container that has a sealed lid or should it be allowed to breath?  How much water do I put in, should it just cover the weeds or double the amount of water?  Can I keep it long or does it have to be used up within a short amount of time?  Do I continue to add weeds (any sort) to the tea or use up a batch at a time?  will I have to pour the tea through a sieve first and dilute it? 

As you can see, I have a number of questions as on YouTube some points are by someone else contradicted so would appreciate your advice and experience.

Thanks.
