Too many people reach for a bottle to fix a problem on their fruit trees without realising how much damage they may accidentally be doing to their garden (and their health). Even when using organic sprays, they should be used safely, it’s best to limit the amount of spraying as much as possible, and it should only ever be used as a back-up plan to support “best practice” organic pest and disease control methods like hygiene, biodiversity and healthy soil.
However, spraying the right thing at the right time can mean the difference between getting fruit, or not. This short course explains when, why and how to spray without doing any damage, while preserving the health of you, your family and garden. You’ll learn the pros and cons of using different types of sprays, and use the suggested complete organic spray program to create your own tailored program.
The course also includes detailed video instructions for mixing Bordeaux spray (one of the most useful and common organic sprays), plus recipes and instructions for more than 10 effective and safe home-made sprays.
