One of the best ways to improve one’s physical and mental health is by gardening, which offers a wide range of advantages. In addition, the quality and taste of homegrown and locally grown produce vastly surpasses that of supermarket produce.
Did you know, however, that baking soda can be used as a garden wand?
This multipurpose ingredient is a godsend in the kitchen, but it also has many other uses around the house.
Care for your garden with baking soda instead of expensive synthetic chemicals:
1. An insecticide
The pests can be repelled by a mixture of one tablespoon of olive oil, two tablespoons of baking soda, and a few drops of liquid soap in a gallon of water. Do this every three days in the garden. Mist the garden with this solution every three days to keep pests at bay.
To get rid of Cabbage worms in your garden, simply mix equal parts flour and baking soda and dust the infested plants.
Five tablespoons of baking soda, five tablespoons of powdered sugar, and one tablespoon of water should be mixed together and then poured into anthills. Reduce the ant population in and around your garden by adding some vinegar.
