Garlic Wash Recipe
Well, here it is. Much requested and sought after - top secret you know - also available from MI5 - once memorised, the written copy has to be eaten!
2 Bulbs Garlic
2 Pints Water
Crush 2 bulbs of garlic
Steam or boil in 2 pints of water for 3 to 4 minutes until blanched
Strain mixture and make back up to 2 pints
Leave to cool
ready to use, mix one tablespoon in five litres of water and sprinkle
on to leaves in late afternoon (in dry weather). Re-apply every
two weeks. The mixture dries on the leaves making them unappealing to
slugs and snails!
The mixture will apparently dry on the leaves making them rather unappealing to slugs and snails!
