AN EVERYDAY item you might already have in your pantry can help banish pests from your beloved garden.
Salt, which you can buy for as little as 50 cents, is one foolproof way of killing slugs and snails and keeping them from invading your garden to eat your beautiful leaves and vegetables.
Outdoor experts at Garden Buildings Direct said copper tape also acts as a great deterrent because it gives the pests electric shocks.
Meanwhile, hot soapy water will keep caterpillars out of your garden so they can’t eat their way through your fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
Plus, on TikTok, gardening enthusiast Megan London explained there’s a super cheap item that you may already have — or that you can find at any grocery store — that will work wonders to get healthy plants in your garden if you’re on a budget.
“You’re probably like, what could that be? Powdered milk,” she revealed in a recent video. Holding up a bag of Walmart’s Great Value brand instant nonfat dry milk, Megan showed that the common pantry item has plenty of calcium and potassium, both essential for healthy plants.
