Re: Ia St Fair now copper soap


Well the Soap Shield has less copper than the regular copper soap
products (they claim) and I have had no adverse reactions from any plant
I've used it on (roses, phlox, zinnias, peppers, gourds) Only downside
is you have to spray when it's below 90 degrees. That's early mornings
here in the summer. For most of you it wouldn't be a huge problem. I've
used the regular stuff too on occasion, but it leaves more blue residue
that the Soap Shield does. Seems to be effective also.
