soap spray


By June1

dorset, United Kingdom Gb

years ago I used soft green soap as insectercide can I use Dove soap or washing up liquid instead If so what ratio to water,because I think the plants can get burnt if the ratio is wronge



I use washing up liquid in about the same ratio as I would use for washing up. It seems to do the trick - although I've not seen off greenfly /permanently/ as I would like!

thanks for that info, wouldnt we all like to see the back of greenfly, but at least the washing up liquid is easy & cheap, I cannot bear the thought of the systemic sprays on the food crops
