USING BAKING SODA IN THE GARDEN

| Saturday, November 3, 2012 | |
BAKING SODA  has many uses as a non-toxic cleaner around the house.

Here I will share with you uses of Baking Soda
in the garden.

  • MAKE A SPRAY TO TREAT AND PREVENT POWDERY MILDEW.  We usually see this kind of plant problem in our backyards.

All you need:
  1. 1 gallon of water
  2. 1 tbsp of baking soda
  3. 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  4. 1 tbsp of dish washing liquid

Spray your plants weekly to prevent fungus on leaves.  Do this preferably on overcast days to avoid from burning the foliage.

  • SPRINKLE BAKING SODA ON CABBAGES AND OTHER BRASSICAS TO PREVENT THE OCCURRENCE OF CATERPILLARS. If those small green itchy cabbage worms have been making Swiss cheese of your cabbages, broccoli and any other plants try to combine baking powder and baking soda and dust it all over the plants wherein the green itchy worms are eating.

Repeat this as necessary until all caterpillars are gone.

  • SWEEP BAKING SODA INTO SIDEWALK CRACKS TO DISCOURAGE WEEDS. Just sweep the baking soda into the cracks to kill any small weeds growing and to prevent new ones to sprout.

  • KILL CRABGRASS. This is an annoying glass that we usually see on our lawn, garden beds, or sidewalk cracks.  Just simply wet it down then pour a thick dusting baking soda on it, just be careful on applying, you might harm your lawn grass if you put to much baking soda on it.

But for sure crabgrass will be gone for two to three days they will start dying.
NOTE:  I am not advertising BAKING SODA above. I am just showing an example photo of a BAKING SODA.  You can buy/use any baking soda as you want as long as it is pure baking soda. XOXO.
