I don't ingest harmful chemicals, I don't give them to my family or my cats and I certainly don't want them near my plants or in my soil. So what should I do about those slugs, meal worms, spider mites, cabbage worms and Japanese beetles that insist on destroying my flowers and vegetables? Simple, really. I just do what my grandmother did; I save my old dishwater.

|Hi, I have a severe problem with whiteflies and this year I am going to try to use your home remedy of the hot peppers, garlic, and onion, etc. Each year they almost wipe me out. I dearly love my Hollyhocks, and they seem to like them almost as much as I do. I've also heard that Neem oil might be helpful, but I am going to try your concoction first. I have never had a problem like this which has been going on every summer. My neighbors have them also, but don't even think they know it. Someone also mentioned Neem oil, which I have never used. I tried spray oil last year, but it looked like it was frying the plant. Thanks, Hollyhock|

|Good luck to you, Hollyhock. I sure hope it helps. |
I happen to love hollyhocks too.
