First Aspirin spray

I sprayed all my plants today at 5 pm with an aspirin solution of 350 mg of aspirin per gallon.

I did not put any soap or any other substance to make the water stick.

By the way, I think the aspirin is synthesized in a lab so this is not an organic method. Still, I will continue spraying since I believe aspirin to be fairly benign.


  1. Say...what's the aspirin spray for? Keeps the bugs at bay?

  2. It apparently makes the plant stronger. Universities in Arizona and Rhode Island have conducted experiments that prove this plus many other gardeners do it. At least one professional tomato grower puts the aspirin tablets at the root of the tomato plant at transplant time -along with fish heads.
    This is the first time I try this.
