Are plant pests a headache? Use aspirin!

Allotment gardeners often have some strange sounding ideas, and some odd solutions to problems. And “Tony the Hoe” has written about a cracker of an idea – Spraying plants with diluted aspirin to boost their immune system.
I once knew an old lady gardener whose motto was “Try anything once, dear.” So I may well give this one a go. Tony points out that aspirin is derived from willow and helps boost the natural immunity of plants against pests and diseases. He has used it to counteract onion eelworm.
He has heaps of other interesting information and I plan to have a good root through his excellent blog. The category list looks very tasty!
