I took notice that some of my plants have I guess bugs 🐜. They are eating the leaves 🍃 on my flowers 🌺 and tomatoes 🍅

    The best thing to do is to spray them with soapy water to dry them out- good luck!

      Thank You will try that. Not today yuck more rain ☔️. I know we need that rain to make our gardens grow. But it seems to rain ☔️ here every other day. Have a Happy 😊 Day

    You could try sprinkling them with baby powder

    I've used Palmolive dish washing liquid in my soapy water spray bottle and sprayed away... IT WORKS & it's completely safe on all plants! 👍🏻

      Thanks but I only use dawn. If it doesn't work I'll go with Palmolive

    Dawn is good also for getting rid of bugs. Make it up like dishwater and I dump a dish pan out on the leaves but, not in the sunlight. It works and recently I have learned from this site that cinnamon fights fungus on tomatoes and squash.

      Patti you can do evening or early morning. I prefer early morning but, if you do water the leaves in the direct sunlight it could cause the leaves to rot or get fungus. If you are just watering it is best not to wet the leaves just the ground. Hope you get this and I am not sending it to myself. Ha! Hope this helps, love the emojis.

    Hi Gail I did see the one with the cinnamon. So is it best to put on my plants 🌱 after the sun ☀️ goes down. Thanks Patti
