  • Age-old gardening wisdom can be cheaper and more organic compared to today’s initiatives. It is because people in the past have been dealing with some common problems in the yard without the aid of automated, synthetic, and chemical innovations for decades.

    Through the years these techniques have evolved and modified to their current state. So, if you want to discover cost-efficient and safe initiatives to nurture your garden and cultivate your food and resources, whilst keeping your shed looking as it should, these tips are for you!

    1. Moss


    If you want to get rid of caterpillars who are notorious for munching on homegrown veggies, you can use an organic repellent instead of chemical options. Just grate a bulb of onion and mix it with water.

    Instead of expensive pesticides, spray this solution on your vegetable patch liberally.

    4. Beer


    To deter pesky aphids that feed on the sap of plants that causes the shrubs to weaken, gardeners are using an age-old organic remedy. They simply mix one cup of vegetable oil with a tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and one cup of water to create a liquid spray.

    They then smear this solution generously on plants to kill disturbing aphids in the garden.

    6. Vinegar

    Until the present time, people still count on vinegar as an organic aid in killing robust weeds. To use it, mix some vinegar with lemon juice to create a fluid blend and spray it on unwanted plants.

    However, diluted vinegar may not be as efficient, so you can opt for a more concentrated type. You can look for this solution from your local gardening centre where you can check their level of concentration.

    7. Aluminium

    Birds can be a nuisance to your flourishing fruit trees since they tend to eat the produce. As a cheap solution to this age-old issue, you can hang up aluminium pans amid all the foliage to reflect the sun rays and prevent the feathered creatures from feasting on your crops.

    8. Hair-waste

    Instead of throwing fallen hair into the bin when cleaning your brush, you can use them to keep rabbits away from your yard. Sprinkling your hair around the garden is a cheap solution minus the guilt of killing these tiny mammals.
