Re: Natural fungicide

Hi John,

Well, chamomile tea is a common one used to prevent damp-off of course and 
if you go to the following web site you can see lots of others that have 
purported anti-fungal activities:  http://www.ghorganics.com/page15.html 
This site even tells you exactly how to make things like elder leaf spray 
and garlic fungicide spray!!

I'm sure there must be hundreds if not thousands, the question is how many 
have truly been proven to be effective vs. someone used it once and then 
passed it along as if it were gospel :o)
