Organic DIY garden remedies (part I)

Lots of people think the most expensive fertilizer, or the most chemical-filled pesticides will make their garden look bright and healthy. However, that’s not always the case. Most of the time, simple organic solutions are the best (and cheapest) ways to take care of your plants. Here are some great ideas to keep your garden healthy without breaking the bank!

Liquid soap

We all have liquid dish or hand soap, so this remedy should be a quick and easy fix! Just mix one tablespoon of soap into one gallon of water. Mix the solution together, put it in a spray bottle, and spray all your plants, making sure to get their undersides as well. This will help repel insects and pests.

Garlic

Take one garlic bulb and blend it together with two cups of water. Then take that concoction and mix it with one gallon of water. This will help keep insects away from your yard because of the smell. You can also mix it with the liquid soap solution to make an even better insecticide!

Vegetable oil

Like the other solutions, just mix two teaspoons of oil with a gallon of water and that should do the trick. You can also mix in one teaspoon of soap to give it an extra kick as well!

Epsom salt

If you have pepper plants then this is a solution that you’ll want to make! Mix two tablespoons of Epsom salt with warm water and let it dissolve. Then use the mixture to spray on your pepper plants when they start budding. This will help the plants hold the fruits instead of losing them!

Vinegar

Don’t waste your money with expensive weed killers; just buy vinegar! Take pure vinegar, put it in a spray bottle, and use it to kill any weeds that may be popping up! Just make sure not to get it on any of your actual plants or it will kill them too!

Baking soda

If you have a fungus problem, then look no further! This baking soda solution works great to deal with most types of mildew or fungus. Add three tablespoons of baking soda into one gallon of water (adding one teaspoon of soap if you want) and spray it on your plants.
