Question: I have heard that you can “plant” a vitamin pill next to a plant and have a healthy plant as well as a bountiful harvest. Is this a joke? I’m not talking about Epsom salts (or eggshells).
Answer: Some vitamin pills do have elements that are useful to plants, but this is not a very scientific way to garden. Try a fertilizer spike instead, or perhaps a No-Doze to keep them growing 24 hours a day.
