They said: “When you boil your food such as pasta, vegetables, eggs, or potatoes, many of the micronutrients such as phosphorus, nitrogen, and calcium are boiled off into the water.  

“Therefore, after you have let the water cool down, not only will you provide your plants with a nice drink, the plants also get a bit of much needed fertiliser from the nutrients within the water.”

The gardening pros said: “Not only is it cost effective and resourceful, the fertiliser it provides for your plants gives them a more stable and steady growth period.
