Recipe

Put leaves of the prescribed herb in a bin filled with water, and let the bin stand in the sun for 10-12 days or some longer if the weather is cloudy. Stir thoroughly several times during the waiting time.

Dilute to 1:10 to water the plants and as is for spraying.


Disadvantages – and Solutions!

  • Manures can become very smelly: Carefully store your manure in a place where it cannot represent an offence to the nose of any of your neighbours!
  • The long maturation time of manures might require anticipating foreseeable infestations. Since generations of pests will mostly appear at certain times of the year, a minimum of knowledge of the biology of the pests that might appear in your garden will help you planning the preparation of your manures on time.
  • Most manures act only as a repellent: The pest might then just skip to a more ‘enjoyable’ neighbouring host plant. To prevent this, treat also the neighbouring plants or grow your crops in rows of plants that are susceptible to different pests (‘mixed cultures’).
