Organic Gardening - Flowers, Fruits, Vegetables
So I chopped down the offending alder, to give Stanley some more sun. I composted the base of the trunk, and then we had torrential rain yesterday, so he can't complain about lack of water. Sun today. I looked up some organic remedies for rust, and one of them was 2 crushed aspirin tablets in a quart of water. I don't know what a quart is (I'm Canadian) so I just filled up my 1 litre spray bottle. Sprayed it all over. I think I may be too late, but anyway ... we can but try. Here's a picture of the poor thing. Fingers crossed.
