Diluted milk is scientifically proven to be as effective on fungus on plants such as pumpkins, squash, zuchinni etc as chemical preparations and has the added benefit of acting as a foliar fertiliser. My favourite though is using a snail trap, set with beer. Does anyone have any other useful garden tips..
I'm particularly interested to hear any uses for potato chips.. ( or anything else that will compliment the rest of the beer I'll have to use up)
