DIRECTIONS FOR USE
How to Use Maggie's Farm 3 in 1 Garden Spray
Always read label directions and precautions prior to use. Shake well before use and periodically during use. Ready-to-use. Do not dilute. This product can be used indoors and outdoors.
Spray Nozzle Adjustments: The spray nozzle has a wide mist setting and a narrow straight stream setting. The mist setting is best when spraying a larger area, for spraying leaves on plants and for covering a number of insects from fairly close range. The straight stream setting is best for spraying from a distance where the mist setting will not reach the target pest or location.
Insect/Mite Treatment: This product is most effective when used in the evening, not in the heat of the day. Thoroughly spray all areas of the plant, including the underside of leaves. Spray until the solution runs off the tips of the leaves. Contact as many pests as possible. Apply every 5 to 7 days when insects are present. May be used up to the day of harvest. Repeat as necessary.
Fungal Treatment: For best results, apply as a protective spray early before diseases are noticed. Apply in the early morning or in the evening, not in the heat of the day. Thoroughly spray all areas of the plant, including the underside of leaves. Spray until the solution runs off the tips of the leaves. Apply every 7 to 10 days or after rain. May be used up to the day of harvest. Repeat as necessary.
Q. Why is it recommended to test on plants first before applying to the entire plant?
A. Some plants/foliage can be sensitive to plant oils (especially tender new growth and blooms). We recommend that our outdoor spray products be tested on plants/foliage to be sprayed to ensure they are not sensitive to the plant oil active ingredients. It is important to also remember that other conditions could make plants more susceptible as well, such as if a plant is stressed due to drought conditions, excessive heat (do not spray plants in the middle of a hot summer day – apply at dusk), etc.
Q. How often do I need to reapply?
A. Like all lawn and garden products, the frequency of application of our lawn and garden products depends on a number of factors, including area of application, type and severity of pest problem, moisture conditions and temperature. The frequency of application information is listed on all of Maggie’s Farm product labels.
A good rule of thumb: one should expect to apply more frequently if applying in larger areas, when the pest problem is severe, after heavy rain, if moisture conditions are high and/or if temperatures are high. It is also important to keep in mind that, unlike synthetic pesticides, the plant oils we use in our products are designed to break down over a short period of time so they do not persist in the environment or leave long-term pesticide residues
Q. Is this a natural bug spray for garden use?
A. Yes, our 3 in 1 garden spray is a is classified as a minimum-risk pesticide under EPA FIFRA 25(b) and can be used in organic gardening. Perfect solution if you need to control bugs in your garden with a natural bug spray.
Q. Does Maggie’s Farm 3-in-1 Garden Spray harm bees?
A. Our botanical products, including Maggie’s Farm 3-in-1 Garden Spray, will kill just about any insect if you spray enough of it directly on them. If you use this product, or any of our other botanical spray products, as directed, it will repel bees and other beneficial insects, but not harm or kill them. In other words, don’t spray bees directly, and they should be fine.
Q. Do you make something that I could use on my indoor plants?
A. Maggie’s Farm 3-in-1 Garden Spray does work on indoor plants, but be careful. Indoor plants are not as hearty as outdoor garden vegetation, so it’s always a good idea to test our products on a small area of the plant before treating, to ensure they don’t get burnt (phototoxicity). In fact, we recommend spraying the soil around indoor plants rather than spraying the leaves directly, as they are more delicate than their outdoor counterparts.
Maggie's Farm 3-1 Garden Spray Saved my Eggplants!
There is no exaggeration in this review. I have been gardening for over 45 years, since I was a kid (I learned under James Underwood Crockett at WGBH TV in the late 1970s), and I've dealt with losing entire crops due to diseases that could not be stopped. Last year (February 2021) I started 30 Black Beauty eggplants from seed. They grew perfectly to two feet tall by the time it was warm enough to move them to the garden here in Connecticut. They grew perfectly for about three weeks and then the leaves started to show disease and die-off. I spent a lot of money buying SEVEN, EIGHT, Neem Oil, and several other sprays under various brand names. None of them worked. And then I found Maggie's Farms 3-1 Garden Spray and tried that. I saw marked improvement within a week -- the disease stopped spreading and new leaves grew. I then cleaned out my local story of the bottles they had left and used Maggie's exclusively on the eggplants. Within three more weeks all signs of disease and plant die-off were gone. I ran out and could not find the spray anywhere else. NO garden center had Maggie's. I found it ONLY at Walmart, of all places. I asked my garden centers in Guilford, Madison, and Westbrook, Connecticut, to order Maggie's 3-1. Not trusting that that would listen to me, I went online and ended up purchasing four cases of the the 3-1 spray directly from Maggie's. Now I'm READY for the 2022 growing season. I grew enough eggplant in 2021 successfully to fulfill crop production obligations I had made. This spray SAVED my entire crop of 30 eggplant plants, and also stopped fungus and leaf die-off that later hit my tomatoes. Only the red peppers were self-resistant to any diseases. Maggie's 3-1 is beyond amazing in my book, and it smells great! Like cinnamon, not at ALL chemically. I'm throwing out all my SEVEN and EIGHT, which is as ineffective in a vegetable garden as it is generally toxic. The only thing I DON'T like about Maggie's 3-1 spray is that it does not come in bulk bottles to use in a large sprayer. Treating 30 eggplant plants--and 50 tomato plants--every week with the small spray bottles is not fun, but it's the only product of the ten others I tried that saved all my crops.
Great for houseplants
I use this on my houseplant soil to control fungus gnats. Works well.
Love this stuff!
It kills Squash bugs and has kept the powdery mildew to a minimum. I wish I could buy it by the gallon!
