10 Ways to Use Baking Soda in the Garden - The Gardening Cook Here are 10 ways to use baking soda effectively in your garden. Use it as a natural fungicide. Just mix 4 tsp of baking soda and 1 gallon of water. Use the mixture on roses for black spot fungus and also on grapes and vines when fruit first begins to appear. Garden Grime buster: Rub baking soda on wet hands after gardening. Rinse well. Use it for Powdery Mildew. Powdery mildew can cause major problems in gardens with high humidity. It affects many plants but zinnias, impatiens, squash and cucumbers are often badly affected. Mix 1 tbsp of baking soda, 1 gallon of water, 1 tbsp of vegetable oil and 1 tbsp of dishwashing liquid. Mix and put in a sprayer. Use weekly. (try to use it when it is not too sunny) Rejuvenate your rose bushes. Mix together one tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp of clear ammonia and one tsp Epsom salt in a gallon of water. One gallon will treat four buses that have lost their luster. Use it as a weed killer/preventer. Pour baking soda full strength onto cracks in a patio or walkway. This will kill any small weeds sprouted and prevent new ones from growing. Kill Cabbage worms. Mix equal parts of baking soda and flour and dust plants such as broccoli, cabbage and kale that are attractive to cabbage worms. The worms will eat the mixture on the leaves and die in a day or so. Repeat the process as often as needed. Sweeten your tomatoes. Sprinkle baking soda near established plants to make your tomatoes sweeter. (See an article on this here.) Kill Crabgrass. Wet the crab grass and pour a heavy dusting of baking soda on it. The crab grass will die back in a few days. (avoid surrounding grass if you can.) Test your soil PH. Wet the soil and take a small amount of baking soda and sprinkle it onto soil. If the baking soda bubbles, your soil is acidic with a PH level under 5. Discourage pests in the garden. Sprinkle baking soda on the soil in your garden. Rabbits, ants, silver fish and roaches do not like it and will stay away. Kill slugs by putting it right on the pest. (don’t get it on the plants though.)

How to Prune Your Tomato Plants for a Better Harvest I also invested in a soaker hose. Not one drop of water was going to touch my tomatoes. One of the secrets to a good tomato harvest and larger tomatoes, is in the pruning. Why prune a tomato plant you ask? A bit different than pruning a regular fruit tree, but the end result is the same. A better harvest. There are two reason we want to prune our tomato plant. One is to eliminate chances for disease in the first place. Any of the leaves that touch the soil should be removed. If they drop down into the soil, they’ll get water on them and act as a ladder for any disease to climb up into the plant. Any of the leaves that appear damaged, yellowing, spotty, or dying should also be removed, they can be the beginnings of blight and you want that eradicated immediately. The second reason is your tomato plant will put more energy into the foliage if not pruned than it will into producing fruit . We don’t tons of lush green leaves, we want tons of ripe tomatoes. A bonus reason is we want plenty of air circulation around the ripening fruit and too many leaves don’t allow for good air flow.

Organic gardening. Helps all fruits, veggies and flowers. Epsom saly helps the soil and it's not possible to use too much because it's pH neutral.
