The garlic mix, is simply garlic boiled up in a pan of water. I use a couple of bulbs and mash the cloves before putting in the water. Leave it to cool and bottle it up. It keeps for several weeks. You can spray as often or as little as you wish. It doesn't kill the slugs but seems to keep them off plants.
Add a small amount of cooking oil and it kills aphids.
I also make seaweed feed. Drift seaweed collected off the beach ( you aren't allowed to pick it ), makes excellent feed for your vegs and is good as a foilage spray. Fill two big bags full, pierce the bags and drop in a tub of water, leave it to stew for at least six weeks and bottle it up. I water this down to 1/2 litre per watering can for a feed and 50/50 as a spray.
