Q.Organic plant spray on this site

Zone 20112 | Anonymous added on July 1, 2020 | Answered

I used your recipe for a plant spray with water, veg oil and Dawn. I followed the recipe and directions for use. Next night, 80% of my plants leaves and some entire plants were literally fried. I spent over $300 this spring on them………..now they are all dead.:(
Please, please don’t encourage other people to use oil in organic sprays.

Oh, we are sorry your plants died after using a homemade plant spray. Always be sure to test your plants first to see how they react to a homemade spray. And it's best to only use it in the early morning or evening, otherwise the heat on the oil can burn plants.

Again we are sorry to hear about this garden disaster.
