Hi everyone thought it might be good to start a thread about all our top tips to keeping our plants and veg aphid and disease etc free.. the non chemical way
i will start off with some of my grandads old tips i found written down in one of my gardening books he gave me.. found it last week.. when looking through.
mix washing soda (sodium carbonate) with water.. weak mix and spray over plants.. leaves a non toxic residue to stop it.
1/2 cup of buttermilk, 4 cups wheat flour mixed well and add to 5 gallons of water... this destroys them and their eggs.
as we all know washing liquid with water is good one
For keeping your plants disease free.
a mix of one part skimmed milk with nine parts water is good against most of them.. it is particularly good for your tomatoes.
So please add your tips and advice on keeping the bugs off and the plants healthy. i look forward in reading them all and learning new ways.
