You guys, I was so excited about how great the garlic-mint garden insect spray worked in our garden (and that I actually remembered to take pictures so I could share it with you), but I’m even more excited that you are finding it helpful, too! It’s been shared thousands of times on Hometalk, gotten tons of shares and repins on Facebook and Pinterest and has created a great dialog here on the blog. I’m so happy that you found the results as amazing as I did and I can’t wait to hear about all your own experiments on the bad bugs in your gardens!
In light of the popularity of the diy garden bug spray post and wanting to you give a bit more information, Brian and I created a video for you that shows:
- how to make it and use it on the plants
- how lush and beautiful our sprayed plants are now, a month after their last spraying
- how it worked on a plant I sprayed in our vegetable garden, but didn’t blog about because it wasn’t a part of the “official experiment” (written completely tongue-in-cheek – do I think I’m a scientist or something?) – my beloved Emerite pole beans. If you’ve ever fought with spotted cucumber beetles, you’ll want to take a look at this.
So, we hope you enjoy this and that it helps you to be able to use it in your gardens!
PS. Liking that facial expression of mine in the lead photo? According to Brian, that was the only one he could pull from the video to make a pinnable graphic with…humm. It made me laugh anyway, so I decided to work with it!
