What natural product can I spray on my strawberries to prevent insects eating them?



Hi Jenny,

The short answer is: anything vegetable or plant based.

There's a good article on Ecocharlie with a variety of suggestions:

The best options might well be a vegetable-based washing up liquid solution - something like Ecover is ideal - or one of the plant-based home made sprays. I like the idea of using the natural defences of one plant (like Chilli, Garlic or Rhubarb) to protect another too.

Many thanks, I'll try the Ecover first.
