    Pests...

    Advertisements
    How do you organically kill pests?

    We have aphids, ants snails and something (I'm gonna guess caterpillar?) that leaves holes in the middle of the leaves....

    I bought some marigolds and I transferred some of my basil last night to the other boxes too...

    Any other natural ideas? I am not using any chemicals...

    Try safer soap....I usually mix a few drops of liquid dishwashing detergent in a spray bottle with some water and shake it up. Then spray on the plants.

    For snails you can put beer in small dishes. They're attracted to the smell and will drown in it.
