Get Rid of Garden Weeds
Wreak Havoc on Your Weeds.
We hate weeds because they are uninvited guests in our gardens. They steal valuable moisture and nutrients from your soil as well as take up space that robs your plants from the essential sunlight they need to thrive. Whether you are dealing with dandelions, ragweed, or crabgrass, the PreGro Plant Sprayer helps you handle annoying weeds.
When simply pulling a weed is not an option, like in the case of poison ivy, grab your PreGro Plant Sprayer. This lightweight garden sprayer utilizes an easy-to-fill glass container which allows you to use a natural home-made weed killing solution. Home-made solutions are inexpensive to mix, use mostly natural ingredients, and can be quite effective at removing invasive plants.
You Will Need:
- 1 quart distilled white vinegar; 5% solution
- 1 teaspoon liquid dish soap *make sure there is no bleach in the dish soap
- Quart or gallon-sized pitcher
- Stirring utensil
- PreGro Plant Sprayer
DIY Recipe to Weaken Weeds
To your quart of distilled white vinegar, add one teaspoon of non-bleach liquid dish soap. Stir solution for a quick minute, then pour into the PreGro Plant Sprayer glass container. Never shake the PreGro Plant Sprayer when the glass container is attached to the sprayer. The PreGro Plant Sprayer utilizes aerosol technology, but does not contain CFCs. For optimal spray, hold sprayer between a 90 degree angle and a 45 degree angle. The PreGro Plant Sprayer gives you the ability to spray ONLY the leaves of the weeds to avoid getting this highly acidic solution on your other plants.
- Use a 5% vinegar solution to minimize damage to surrounding plants.
- Spray on a warm, sunny day to burn the leaves faster.
- Excessive use of vinegar can make soil more acidic. Changes in soil pH can be more harmful to the plants than vinegar itself.
