You probably have at least one box of baking soda in your home – if you’re like so many other Americans, it’s most likely sitting in your refrigerator as a way to combat odors, and you might have another carton in your pantry for baking. But there are so many other uses for it, from household cleaning and health to gardening, you might want to go out and purchase at least a couple more. Here is what baking soda can do to your garden. 1.Get more beautiful blooms. For flowers that thrive in alkaline soil, such as hydrangeas, begonias, and geraniums, you can encourage them to bloom magnificently by using baking soda. Just dissolve a little baking soda in your water before giving them their regular drink. Also to keep your cut flowers fresh for a long time put a teaspoon of baking soda in the vase. 2. Sweeter Tomatoes. Sprinkle a small amount of baking-soda around the base of your tomato plants. The baking soda will be absorbed into the soil and lowers the acidity level of tomatoes, thus gives you sweeter than tart flavor. 3.Give Plants a Boost. Mix together 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon clear ammonia and 1 teaspoon Epsom salt in a gallon of water. Mix well and give each plant about a quart of the solution. This solution will work as a fertilizer, the plants that are looking dull, and growing slowly will perk up, rejuvenate their growth and become lush green. 4.Use it as a Pesticide. Use baking soda to effectively reduce infestations of many insects such as aphids, scales, and the spider mites. It may not kill them all but have a repellent action and halt their progress. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/3 cup of olive or mustard oil. […]

    Ammonia will strip a lifetime of build-up on old cast iron down to the bare metal. So yeah, I'm gonna put it on my plants…Ammonia and vinegar makes a streak-free glass cleaner better than Windex or s Sparkle. Salt? (Which baking soda is a form of btw.) If you want to wreak vengeance on someone, just salt their garden! Not only kills all, but contaminates/poisons the soil for a long time…
