Vinegar in the Garden

Hi folks!

If you’re headin’ out to your garden, take a bottle of vinegar with you! Here are some terrific tips for putting it to use around the yard:

  1. Fleas and ticks will stay away from your pets if you add 1 tsp. of vinegar per quart bowl of drinking water (ratio based on a 40 lb. animal).
  2. Send ants a packin’ by spraying their hills and trails with vinegar.
  3. Clean your flower vases and terra cotta pots by rubbing them with a vinegar-soaked paper towel.
  4. Get rid of unwanted weeds by dousing them with vinegar.
  5. Your acid-loving azaleas will be happy as clams if you add 2 tbsp. of vinegar to a quart of water and use the mix to water them once a week.


  1. Thank you! Its too hot to weed, but perfect condition to spray vinegar. I have been using your ideas for years now. Thank you again.

  2. Thank you, great advice. I needed to weed my daughters garden but it was too hot, so I sprayed them with vineager instead. Works like a charm.
