For New Gardeners: How to Make a Baking Soda Anti-Fungal Garden Spray

For New Gardeners: 
How to Make a Baking Soda Anti-Fungal Garden Spray

From experience, I want to say... make sure you test spray your plants with any new spray that you make, buy or borrow. Just spray some leaves and wait 24-48 hours to see if it is safe for your plants. It is also important you don't spray plants generally when the temperature is over 90 degrees or during full afternoon sun. Morning spraying is best.

This is one spray that can be used as an anti-fungal and it can be modified in many ways. I just wanted to show you the basic recipe. You can modify it as you wish. If you are like me you have a bit of mad professor in you and different things can be added to it.

It effectively works to prevent and stop fungi from spreading. It will not kill off established fungi on leaves. Those leaves should be removed. It is effective against Powdery Mildew and Early Blight and other similar problems.
