You need to stop using chemical pesticides and plant foods if you want to keep an organic garden and start using vinegar instead. It is a natural way to destroy weeds, and support the life of your fruits, vegetables, and plants.
These are 10 ways to use apple cider and white vinegar in your garden:
Get Rid of Weeds
Pour some apple cider vinegar onto the unwanted garden growth to destroy them, but keep the soil healthy.
Keep Flowers Fresh
Add a teaspoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons of vinegar to a quart of water prior to adding the flowers to keep the freshly cut flowers fresh.
Remove Slugs and Snails
Spray the flowers with some undiluted vinegar to destroy slugs and snails and keep them at bay.
Food for Acidic Loving Plants
Some plants like holly, begonias, gardenias, azaleas, rhododendrons, and hydrangeas, grow better in acidic soil, so you should add a cup of white vinegar to a gallon of water and spray them.
Cleanse Your Hands of Allergens
To remove the debris and soothe the itchiness after working in the garden, you can wash the hands with some distilled vinegar.
Mix vinegar with water in ratio 1:1 and pray the ant hills with the solution to destroy them.
