Pour Vinegar on Your Garden Plants. You'll Be Shocked at What Happens!
When it comes to products for our garden, we rely heavily on chemical products and fertilizers. But these are full of toxins and unhealthy for you, your garden, and the environment...
Instead of dumping harsh, harmful chemicals all over your garden, why not try something that's 100% natural, that won't hurt your health or the environment, and that you probably already have in your house?
The solution we're talking about is white vinegar.
You'd be surprised at the number of ways you can put this everyday household item to good use outdoors. And it's so effective!
Here are a few of the things it can do:
Chase Away The Insects
Vinegar is a natural pesticide. Sprinkle a bit over your plants to repel insects and protect your garden.
In addition to keeping away insects, vinegar can also be effective at deterring dogs, cats, rodents, and rabbits from munching on your plants.
Keep Your Flower Pots Clean
You can easily eliminate all stains and traces of soil in your used flower pots by giving them a quick wipe-down with vinegar.
Get Rid Of Weeds
If you're having trouble with weeds sprouting up on your pathways outside, just drizzle them with vinegar. This will make your garden neat, organized, and presentable once more!
Keep Snails Away
Snails may not be as common a pest as insects, but they still can plague your garden if you don't take the right steps to ward them off. Try vinegar!
Fight Fungus Growth
If your plants' growth has suddenly slowed down or if you notice little dark spots on them, they're probably infected with a fungus. Remedy this by mixing together 2 tsp of white vinegar and chamomile tea, then sprinkle the mixture on your plants. This will destroy the fungus and let your plants recover.
Encourage Seeds To Grow
Vinegar can be surprisingly effective in helping seeds sprout. The night before planting them, rub the seeds gently with sandpaper, then mix 2 cups of hot water with 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Soak the seeds in this product all night, then plant them in the morning. You'll be shocked to see how much they grow!
