After reading this newsgroup I thought I would try insecticidal soap to rid
my flowers from unwanted pests. I bought the Safers Insecticidal Soap ready
to use. After spraying it on several plants including glads and roses all
of them started to wilt wihtin a couple of hours. Is this normal? I took
a hose and washed them all down and they are doing better but the edges of
the flowers have curled. I also noticed this after making my own soap a few
weeks ago. Any suggestions?
Also I noticed Safers Insecticidal Soap does not mention it can be used in
the Garden on my veggies. In fact it says not to use on foodstuff. If I
recall correctly some earlier posts suggested doing that. Any comments?
One last question on a different matter. My crooked neck squash plants have
started to bear several times and each time the squash will get 3 or four
inches long then turn black and fall off. Does anyone know why this is
Thanks in advance for the help.
