Vinegar, what are its properties applied to plants

Many people in the garden use vinegar primarily because it repels insects and diseases that usually affect the roots and leaves. Vinegar also fights mold . When used on hydrangeas, it has so many advantages and benefits. For example, it acidifies the pH of the vegetable soil and corrects it if the soil is too alkaline.

Thanks to vinegar the plant is able to feed itself better . However, we must pay close attention to the quantities, because the ingredient could be too acidic if used in its natural state and therefore damage the plant. The same thing could happen even if it were to be poured directly onto the flowers or into the soil, by itself.


When the hydrangea appears to be weak or yellowing, the soil should be checked . In this case it could be that the plant finds it difficult to assimilate iron and all the nutrients , due to an excessively high Ph. This could also derive from the fact that plants are often watered with tap water, which is rich in limestone and which increases the accumulation of debris. In this the ph is more alkaline.

It is recommended to water the plants with rainwater , or let the tap water rest for a day and then water them so that the limescale residues settle on the bottom . To use vinegar effectively and see immediate results on the plant, mix it with water and add 1 to 4 tablespoons of vinegar for every 5 liters of water.

If you follow these small precautions in 24 hours you will notice a notable result and the plant will have taken on a stronger and brighter color. You just have to try.
