Hydrogen peroxide in the garden

Post  happyfrog on 12/12/2010, 6:46 am

Been reading about hydrodgen peroxide uses in the garden and thought it so interesting i had to share wtih other organic gardeners.

link: http://www.using-hydrogen-peroxide.com/peroxide-garden.html

it makes a lot of sense and i'll be trying this out when i do my seed starting - as that'll be first opportunity to utilize and test out some of this information.

My understanding, and this could be faulty, is that when H2O2 is used as an antiseptic it's action, while releasing O2 that may be beneficial, is actually causing disruption of cell membranes and there is no discrimination between good cells and bad cells, thus it could very well destroy beneficial bacteria and other organisms as well as new cell growth in wounds. I think I would like to see some studies regarding some of these claims. Sounds like another project for winter.

Here is an interesting thread from another garden forum which speaks of H2O2.

H2O2 in the garden

Post  elaine.in.spain on 10/12/2012, 8:03 am

the organic farmers I know in Europe and in Canada use H2O2 in the animal's water to improve their health, and with cows it increases their milk yield, and they use it with the crops for the same reasons.
Google H2O2 Gardening Bill Munro. I found a very useful article from Bill Munro, who actually took H2O2 medicinally and cured himself of cancer after the doctors had told him it was terminal!

I think the reason that the beneficial properties of H2O2 are not so well known is because none of the chemical companies can make any money from it and so they don't advertise it.

I would still like to see some scientifically conducted study results about it's use in the garden and such.

This is my understanding also. I actually experienced this when treating a wound once. I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't heal until I found that I was killing the good guys. I never used it again for that purpose.

I do a lot of wound care and although there was a time we did use it, it is no longer used because it is toxic to the good cells.
That being said, it does work great on swimmer ear....

I would not mind trying the strong stuff on weeds though, persistant weeds that I am pulling out over and over again.
good article, I did not end up with any real diseases in my garden this year, or at least very few.... but will keep it in mind.

Re: Hydrogen peroxide in the garden

 For a moment I thought someone was having a BLOND moment in their garden , till I read the link   Laughing .

Over here you're likely to get your collar felt by the long arm of the law if you start trying to buy bottles of strong solution Hydrogen Peroxide.
As it is what our home grown terrorists used in the explosives on the London buses & underground & an attempted explosive device that thankfully failed to fully detonate in a guys underpants whilst he was on a flight a few years ago .

A quick dip or spray with normal sodium hypochlorite unscented household bleach at a couple of drops per litre is  sufficient to sterilize most gardening things for a few days .

Nonna posted this in the Straw Bale Gardening post and I'm thinking she meant to post it in this one so I've copied and pasted it Smile 

Nonna.PapaVinoHere on our Yankton Mountain farm outside St. Helens, Oregon, we keep hydrogen peroxide and baking soda on hand for use if, actually when, we have a skunk spray: a dog, human pant leg, wood pile, etc.  Mixed like this: 
 

In a plastic bucket (not metal), mix the following ingredients thoroughly: 

 

1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide 

1/4 cup of baking soda 

1 tablespoon of liquid dishwashing soap (Ivory is recommended)

 

For very large pets you can double the recipe (recommended) or you can add one quart of lukewarm tap water to provide complete coverage.

 

Wash your dog thoroughly, working the solution deep into the fur. Make sure you really saturate the areas where she took the direct hits. Your nose knows. 

 

Skunks usually aim for the face, but try to keep the solution out of her eyes, as it can sting. Keeping a bottle of pure water nearby to rinse the eyes is a good idea.

 

Leave the solution on for at least 5 minutes or until the odor is gone. You may need to rinse and repeat with some of the more stinky areas. 

 

After you’re done, thoroughly rinse your pet with lukewarm water. 

 

Pour the remaining solution down the drain while running water.

Nonna
