A few years ago, a friend at the gym told me about some homemade concoctions that really seemed to help her gardens. Ordering a book, I now pick up the ingredients (Ocean State Job Lot) and mix up the magic potions. Although I haven't tried all of the "recipes," the ones I have used seem to work! Of course, the day I went to Walmart and bought a tin of tobacco, the woman at the register gave me a strange look when I told her I needed it to make "tobacco tea." However, once you get past the lists of ingredients, they've all proved beneficial.
