What do these have in common?
My kids and I planted garden seeds tonight. It was a great horticulture lesson, and yes they will be tested.
In a weak tea solution ad 2 drops dish soap, 2 drops ammonia, and 1 drop whiskey into a spray bottle and shake. This concoction sprayed on top of your seeds after planting, makes for a great starter tonic. From what I can gather, here is what they do. Dish soap allows the ammonia and whiskey to cling instead of just run off. Ammonia works as a disinfectant against bacteria and germs. Whiskey works to detour pest.
This is a recipe from Jerry Baker- America’s Master Gardner. You can look him up on the web put I first found out about him on PBS.
