using aspirin on tomato plants to boost disease immunity

Post  jazzycat on 5/3/2013, 1:41 am

Does anyone do this? I've never heard of it, but I came across this video saying the salicylic acid in aspirin boosts hormones that help fight off disease.

Seems like there is some research that suggests this is true. Here's a link to a scientific journal article: http://www.znaturforsch.com/ac/v59c/s59c0856.pdf

I've got a gallon sprayer on my list of supplies for this year.  Gary from the video, experiments and follows thru with lots of tips on garden veggies.  I found him knowledgable in other things before.

Mel recommends this.  Can't remember if it was in a book, in a newsletter or on his blog, but I saw it officially.

HMMM, I use a salicylic shampoo for my scalp psoriasis.  Wonder if it can be used as the soap in my soapy insect spray.  Could serve 2  purposes. What do you think?

Please provide a citation of Mel's recommendation.

Regarding your question about using psoriasis shampoo in the garden...
I think that adding things to the garden that are not made of compost is a game of Russian Roulette. After all, the garden doesn't have psoriasis, does it?

Kay, I wouldn't use the psoriasis shampoo as a source of aspirin. There are other ingredients in that shampoo.

It's in the Answer Book if someone wants to look it up and provide the pg # & recipe.  I don't own the book but got it out of the library and did the baby aspirin in water after getting early, and later late, blight on my cherry tomatoes.  I watered the base of the plants with the liquid and it kept the blight at bay.  I had a fine season!

Mel B. may have it in the Answer book, but I don't own it either. Here are a few links if anyone is interested. I had Septora leaf blight last yr. and I think the last link has several homemade fungicides, which I think I will try them, couldn't hurt. Jo

From the Square Foot Gardening Answer Book:

"What should I do about small spots of fungus on my plants??"

Answer - "... on the odd chance your plants are affected, here's a homespun solution:  water the plant once a week with a solution of one Bayer's children aspirin dissolved in a cup of water.  Just make sure you water only the affected plant; this solution should not be used on healthy plants".
