cabbages leaves been eaten
« on: June 05, 2011, 10:56:08 am »
What does  any one suggest I use int he way of safe sprays to spray my cabbage, cauliflowers, broccali with.   Dont want  to use any harsh sprays, but do want vegies from these plants.   My egg fruit is also being eaten, and would like something for this or can I use the same.  Does any one have any suggestions.

As you are in Australia (?), for purchased sprays you would do better putting a post on a similar website in your own locality.

For something you make up yourself, a squirt of washing up liquid in water and applied via a spray bottle.

what about making up a garlic spray, i did this on my veg plants and nothing ate them again.  They hate the pungent smell.
