Home remedy for aphids. You can kill aphids by spraying, especially under the leaves, with a solution of 2 tsp mild dish or laundry soap to a bottle of luke warm water. The soap washes off the aphidís protective waxy coating and causes dehydration.
You can also mix three parts luke warm water to one part vegetable or horticultural oil and a couple drops of dish soap. This mixture can be sprayed on to clog the respiratory spiracles of aphids. Spray once a week taking turns between solutions. If using these solutions on food plants, be sure to wash them before eating. If using the oil solution, donít spray on very hot and sunny days as the oil can magnify the sun and possibly harm the plant.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

If you are feeding plants, liquid fertilizer, they love being sprayed on the undersides with dilute fertilizer. They suck it right up and you can see a change in a hungry plant in 24 hours. Potted plants (pun?) and house plants love rain water. Nothing finer than rain, no chemicals and no minerals from the ground. I used to collect all my rain water off the roof in 55 gallon drums. Gardens will love you and reward you.
