Spraying Basics

1. Spray the plants when it is cool, like early morning or late afternoon. When spray is applied in bright hot sunlight it can burn the plants.

2. Some plants will be too fragile to spray. Leaves such as bean leaves many die under sprays, so test each spray on each plant before using on your whole garden.

3. The sprays that prevent can be used once a week to control insect attack or disease.

4. Many preventions can also help such as planted beneficial plants like basil, oregano and pyrethrum around the garden or even in growers

5. Some sprays such as hot peer and tobacco are very poisonous and can be fatal if swallowed. If you have small children then it is best not to use those that are so poisonous.
