Spraying for blackspot & using Fish Emulsion

mollypitts(8Austin)April 2, 2004

Can anyone tell me if there is a problem w/ spraying for blackspot using the baking soda solution & also using Fish/Seaweed Emulsion?

I just sprayed last night w/ Fish/Seaweed & now want to start doing the Cornell thing to fend off blackspot. I want to make sure also that this spraying won't hurt ladybugs, & butterflies etc.

I don't know if there is a method to follow or if I should wait for a while. I'd like to get into a routing.

Also, will it be too much if I put down alfalfa pellets now too?

Cornell solution contains horticultural oil which is an insecticide. It is non specific and will smother any insect it gets on, as will any kind of oil. What are you hoping to accomplish with the fish emulsion? Are you trying to use it as a fertilizer or for some other reason?
