    Hi Gary,

    I sprayed my tomato plants with asprin and the leaves are now all curled up
    and the day after, the plant looks as though it is dying. Should this have happened?

    Regards,
    Bil.

    Gary can I mix my neem oil in with my baking soda spray and spray them together or does it need to be sprayed separately? Thanks for all of your great videos.

    This is a very good video. I love all your videos. Keep them coming. In the past I have used canola oil mixed with some water against pests and it worked pretty good. You should try it as well. Take care.

    One thing I've learned is Borage does NOT like Baking Soda spray!!!! Had some gallon pots with Borage scattered around the tomatoes so they got overspray from when I sprayed the tomatoes and the Borage is all but dead!

    Hey Gary. I have a quick question. All my roma-style tomatoes are doing very badly.. san marzano, amish paste, etc. I've actually had to toss a few trays which upsets me. I have a new grow room this year just like yours. They just withered and died after a weeks. I do have some mold, I leave my lights on 24-7, I stopped using miracle grow a few weeks ago as you suggested but they haven't comeback.. Most of my other plants are fine. I have about 1000 seedlings (46 varieties from pumpkins, cukes to mellons to lemon grass, a lot of herbs) BUT only the Roma – style toms can't thrive.. and ideas? thanks luv ya !

    I experienced leaf curl when applying aspirin + baking soda solution. Mostly on new growth. Is this a normal response after the application?

    Do you need to use neem oil mix immediately after mixing? Or you can store for weeks?

    Thanks. Keep posting. Your neem oil video from a few years ago has helped me a lot.

    Excellent video. I started this 2 weeks ago. Sadly in GA zone 8 we went from cool April at times hitting 90. Been wet and 80s here as of late. I do this really late at night/early morning when I know the temp is around 70 degrees to avoid leaf problems. So far so good. Last year early blight destroyed my tomato plants. Powdery mildew hurt my squash mid summer after a productive spring. Going to try on them when they get larger. As you said, prevention is key. Down here in humid land we are pretty much prime for anything to grow and not in a good way.

    Great video! Ok, say I sprayed the entire garden with neem, how soon after doing this should I apply the aspirin spray? Same day? The next day? Maybe a silly question but here it goes. Is neem ok for all plants/veggies. For instance peas or beans? You said to me once, not on greens. Everything is fair game except greens for neem?

    Also can we use Neem oil to control Tuta absoluta?

    off topic……If you get Tomatoe horn worms like I do every year use Thuricide it works great.

    Can you just put the aspirin in with the baking soda mixture and spray all at one time?

    Can these sprays be utilized on other leafy fruits and vegetables? My cantaloupes are very close to the ground and prone to disease. What about strawberries?

    I have started spraying my tomatoes with baking soda once a week and every other week I add an aspirin to the baking soda mix….this really works! Thanks, Gary!

    I'm going today to go get not coated aspirins, banking soda I always have at home. Thank you, I appreciate the natural recipe very much and You very much. When I was younger I had written some recipes from Jerry Baker older gentlemen that would give gardening advice, those recipes had moved with me through out the years. I don't know what happened to them with the last move, it was a difficult one. Anyways, I have used your neem recipe on my fruit trees already. Thanks again!!

    Hi Gary! Thanks for all the info you share. Many of my plants are being eaten by flea beetles! Any organic remedies for that? Thanks in advance!

    thanks Gary. I have been thinking about alka-seltzer…it is aspirin, sodium bicarb and citric acid. Wonder if it would be effective,
