This is a quick recipe I got from my Mom, the Mama at Breezee Creek Farm, for protecting your plants from bugs and disease.
My rose bush isn’t doing so good, and my basil is practically dead, so trying to save my bush and hopefully revive my basil (if that is at all possible). So, I got this recipe and out it together this morning and spritzed it on the stems and under the leaves of all my plants after watering.
