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.
Here are 10 ways to use apple cider and white vinegar in your garden:
Get Rid of Weeds
Pour a little apple cider vinegar on 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 the snails and slugs and keep them at bay.
Food for Acidic Loving Plants
Some plants like holly, begonia, gardenia, azaleas, rhododendrons, and hydrangeas grow better in acidic soil, so add a cup of white vinegar to a gallon of water and spray them.
Cleanse Your Hands of Allergens
To remove debris and soothe the itchiness after gardening, you can wash your hands with some distilled vinegar.
Mix vinegar with water in ratio 1:1 and pray the ant hills with the solution to destroy them.
Wash the Garden Tools
Soak garden tools in vinegar overnight to remove rust and grime, and rinse off with water. You can also tie a plastic bag of vinegar over a water spigot to keep it submerged.
Keep Cats Away
Pour some distilled vinegar into the sand and soil to keep cats away from the places in the garden that they use as a toilet.
Keep Rabbits at Bay
If rabbits are common guests in your garden, to keep them away, soak cotton balls in distilled vinegar and place them in a 35mm film container, poke several holes on its top and keep it in the garden.
Clean Out the Birdbath
Scrub the birdbath with a mixture of undiluted water and white vinegar and wash off with water.
