Hello my name is***** and I will be the professional helping you today. I have over 20 years of horticulture experience and currently am the head superintendet at a high end private golf course in south Florida.What types of plants and seed were they using this mixture on? Aspirin has shown good results in latest studies on plants. I use it in my weekly sprays on our greens. The honey acts as a food source to the soil microbes.Let me know what types of plants these are and I will send you a good mix.

We have the general house plants and lots of aloe. Plus I do try to put out some garden plants like zucchini from seed peppers and green onions, thanks in advance

Heat 1 gallon of water over your stove. Then add 1/4cup of blackstrap molasses (better than honey for plants because of all the natural vitamins and nutrients such as calcium, selenium), then add one powderized asprin pill. To add even more value to your mixture you can add fish hydrosolate and liquified seaweed. Both of these products are readily available on amazon. Also IF you can find it worm compost extract or tea would be the last thing I would add.

Its important not to add the kelp, fish and worm after the heated water has cooled.
