All Natural Weed Killer

Even in the best of plots, weeds will grow. And why wouldn't they? You've provided inviting soil and the sun shines on even the most reviled plant. If you are fighting the good fight against those unwelcome visitors, there is no shortage of chemical options for clearing the decks, but many are now seeking alternatives to commercial herbicides as we enjoy a long-overdue trend toward "greener" living.All Natural Weed Killer is a hand-crafted formula that delivers complete plant pest control. It is water-soluble and recommended to be used on plants in your home garden. It is intended to be used every two weeks or when you see signs of pests, whichever comes first. It will never harm your plants and should not be used in direct sunlight.

When looking for a natural alternative to herbicides, a cocktail of vinegar, salt and liquid dish soap has all of the ingredients needed to quickly kill weeds. Acetic acid in the vinegar and the salt are both very good at drawing moisture from weeds. Dish soap acts as a surfactant, which is an agent that will reduce the surface tension that can cause the weed-killing concoction to bead on the leaves instead of being absorbed by the plant. On a warm, sunny day, the results of this homemade spray will be obvious in a matter of hours as weeds turn brown and wither.As plants begin to sprout, so do weeds. Because weeds are frequently more aggressive growers than the crop itself, plants are at their most vulnerable in these early stages. Once plants reach a size where they are able to "shade out" their competitors, dangers are reduced.

Germinating seeds in containers and transplanting them into the ground once they have reached two inches or more eases the process. None of us like weeds in our garden. We want what we planted to be what we planted! And weeds will choke out the plants in your yard that you actually want there, stealing nutrients, water and sun. On the other hand, these days we have been enlightened to the positives in cutting as many chemicals out of our lives as possible. While we know the “Round-Up” vs. “Homemade Weed Killer’ debate is real for both sides, we choose to err on the side of caution whenever possible. And using natural weed killers when we can just makes good sense. After all, it’s not just you, your pets and your kids being exposed to chemicals you spray in the yard. It’s the bumblebees and song birds too! (And microorganisms, and other living things, but that’s another post.) (Source: www.thegardenglove.com)
