Why You Should Try Adding Clove Oil To Your Garden
Clove oil contains eugenol, which offers antimicrobial properties while acting as an effective pesticide in your garden. You only need a few drops to make a big impact.
Fill a spray bottle with 1 liter of water, then add 1 or 2 drops of clove oil. Shake the bottle to combine the two ingredients, and give it a good shake every time you use it.
Clove oil is most effective against soft-bodied bugs like aphids, whiteflies, and spider mites. Its oily nature helps it stick to those pests while the chemicals eliminate them.
To see if the spray is safe to use, try it on a small portion of a leaf. Then, spray the top and underside of leaves,
the stem of the plant, and anywhere else you see pests.
Clove oil can also help with powdery mildew, a common fungal problem. When you see white "powder" on your plants, soak the leaves with your homemade clove oil garden spray.
The spray is also useful for stopping bacterial blight. Remove any severely damaged leaves and treat the rest of the plant with clove oil spray at least once a week.
