Insecticidal soap against aphids
I’ve been using liquid dishwashing soap diluted in water to spot treat my Helleborus plants. Now, on your website I hear of insecticidal soap, which I never heard of before. Does it honestly work much better? How is it insecticidal once dry?
Do you recommend any horticultural oils to treat pests, like aphids and more, on evergreens, like rhododendron, Hellebores, and other such plants? Do you have a treatment regimen that most gardeners should follow to keep pests at bay, and keep the ecosystem of the garden well balanced?
Any suggestions and recommendations would be appreciated.
Thank you, Michael in East Hampton, NY (zone 7)
