Various chemicals and toxins are surely the last thing you want in your garden and you do not want them to feed your plants.
Although very cheap, pesticides and fertilizers are extremely bad for the environment, not to mention their impact on our health. Vinegar is a phenomenal choice for gardeners who want a safe and natural product.
You will be surprised when you see what you can do in the garden with vinegar. It has several uses in your garden that you should try:
Rodents, snails, dogs, cats and rabbits hate the smell of vinegar. Just spray vinegar around your plants and you will have no more problems with pests.
Clay pots – cleaning
Clay pots retain soil moisture and protect the roots of the plants during hot summer days, but they tend to absorb calcium, minerals and salt from the water and fertilizer and it makes them look unattractive.
Clean your pot of debris and soak it in a solution made of a cup of vinegar and 3-4 cups of water. Let the pot remain in the solution for about 30 minutes
Vinegar is the best organic insecticide. Just spray the areas where the ants are and they will disappear very fast. After a couple of days spray again for sure that they will no longer be there.
Sprinkle vinegar on walls or concrete path and you will get rid of annoying weeds and your garden will look neat.
Longer duration of cut flowers
In the vase where you keep the flowers, add 2 tablespoons of vinegar and a teaspoon of sugar in the water. Put your flowers and change the water every 3-4 days.
