Chive Spray


Best for powdery mildew, apple scab, and black/brown spot.

  • 1 cup chive flowers, firmly packed
  • Boiling water
  • Liquid dish soap


  • Directions:
    Steep the flowers in 4 cups boiling water in a bowl and leave to stand until cool. Once cooled, add a few drops of dish soap, which helps the solution to stick, and it is ready to spray on crops to help alleviate apple scab, powdery mildew, and black/ brown spot.
    Garlic chives can be used in the same way to fight against aphids and spider mites, in addition to fungal issues.
