Rhubarb Garden Spray.

How to Make Rhubarb Garden Spray: 5 Steps (with Pictures):
Rhubarb doesn’t just taste delicious, the leaves of the plant can also provide a natural pesticide for your garden.

- "Dilute. The solution should be diluted 1 part solution and 9 parts water; in other words, add 9 litres / 2.3 gallons water to create the spray."

Using Rhubarb Pesticide
Use this pesticide for controlling aphids, slugs, caterpillars etc that crawl on the leaf of your decorative (non edible) plants.
As mentioned, do not use this pesticide on edible crops.
Though a good wash may remove the poison, I would not recommend testing it.
And a reminder not to use it if you have dogs who may lick or chew the plants you are spraying.

Rhubarb Spray
1 cup rhubarb leaves
6.5 cups water
