I read somewhere that a good spray of seaweed as a foliage feed helps to keep off unwanted pests....particularly at the growing tips and in the spring. Has any fellow gardener heard about this? Well it would do no harm I suppose.



Liquid seaweed is a good foliar feeder but does not particularly keep of pests garlic on the other hand does.

I think Baby Bio is seaweed based, but the best thing that I find to get rid of pests is a spray with a strong soapy water solution. Washing up liquid is fine.

maybe a combined soapy garlicky spray would work wonders. ? ingredients there for a new product.

You can already buy concentrated garlic spray or make your own... not difficult. Spring is the time to apply.

Seems the insects can smell it long after we aren't able to Snoop, I remember having a dentist once who liked garlic - not a pleasant experience!
