Organic Gardening Solutions – Tips and Tricks

What can I Do about Slugs?
Having problems with slugs? Go on a nightly slug hunt in the spring. Pour a little bit of table salt on the slugs. Keep this up for a few nights and your slug problem should decrease dramatically. Another alternative is to sink a cup of beer into the ground near plants that have been damaged. Slugs love beer, but can’t get out of the cup!

How can I Keep Animals out of my Garden?
Use red pepper spray and many critters won’t come back for seconds. It makes the plants just too spicy for rabbits, mice, birds and squirrels. Mix 3 tablespoons of Tabasco sauce and 1 teaspoon dish soap. Add this to 1 quart of water.

What is an Organic Way to Kill Weeds?
Vinegar can kill most weeds but it can also kill your plants. Do not pour it on weeds in your grass or you’ll end up with dead grass spots. If the weeds are close to other plants, try using a paint brush to brush the vinegar on the weed’s leaves.
