Coca Cola or Pepsi for the Garden?


Recommended Posts

Coke and Pepsi are not ORGANIC

try a weak solution of detergent

 

One thing that's come out of all this is that I've stopped drinking coca cola !

 

Dont know why, but the vet stuck half a litre of medical-grade eucalyptus oil in my hands and said 'keep it'. This is like gold, and huge amounts of it - but it's probably all going on the floor.

Lucy, you don't need to wrap him in cotton wool when he has the Frontline on, provided you keep it done regularly. You got a big fright and it's making you extra cautious. Keep going with him as usual and more than likely if a tick hops off one of his friends and onto him, it will take one bite and hop straight back off... it might not even take a bite - not quite sure how it works with ticks.

 

It might be worth talking to a friendly vet and see what the story is. I had to give my cat Advocate every 2 weeks during flea season because he got a flea allergy dermatitis. The recommended dose was once a month but that wasn't enough for him.

Lucy, have a look at these sites with a number of products which I have used for organic pest control. You may find something to help in one of them.

Cheers

One good thing that's come out of all this is we're starting a weekly dog clinic at my house - the incredible vet is going to travel here and the local families will be able to get their pets checked out.

 

Relief to a lot of families! The vets in this area have experience of cows and chickens and are too afraid to examine the dogs or diagnose thoroughly.

 

My neighbours, Dilip and Anita, have been the first - and their dog Puppy is finally getting her ears fixed up (they were grey, mouldy and v painful for her)

Sugary soda pops are not the most ideal choices for use as fertilizer. Therefore, pouring soda on plants, such as Classic Coca Cola, is inadvisable. Coke has a jaw dropping 3.38 grams of sugar per ounce, which would certainly kill the plant, as it would be unable to absorb water or nutrients. for more information pepsico
