The Many Uses of Vinegar – Landscaping Tips

Did you know that vinegar has many uses outside of the kitchen?  Try it in the garden for the following projects:

  – Add a cup of vinegar to a gallon of tap water and use it on acid-loving plants like azaeleas, rhododendrens and gardenias.

  – 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of sugar added to a vase will help your cut flowers last longer.

  –  If you’ve been working with garden lime, rinse your hands with vinegar afterwards to help avoid flaking skin.

  –  Vinegar also helps clean lime off planters.  Give pots a good scrub before reusing them.

  –  Vinegar kills weeds and grass in unwanted areas.

It doesn’t matter what type of vinegar you use, but keep in mind that cider vinegar can leave stains on porous material.
