DIY Organic Pesticide
Keeping a garden green the organic way – this solution is effective against aphids and other soft-bodied insects.
Our pesticide can be used on all plants, including fruit trees, vegetable plants and herbs. The soap flakes help the mixture stick to the plants, so ensure you rinse your fruit, vegies and herbs well before eating. Learn how to grown an organic garden here.
