The Holistic Spray
Our Holistic Spray, based on the spray developed by Michael Phillips, is the primary way we deal with pests and diseases in our orchard. This all-natural spray provides the following benefits:
- deters insect pests
- mitigates disease by pre-colonizing plant surfaces with beneficial microbes
- strengthens the tree's ability to fight off pests and diseases by giving it a nutritional boost
- can reduce the need for other organic chemical inputs
Based on our own experience with the spray, we would highly recommend it! As the saying goes, 'an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!' The recipe and spray schedule can be found HERE.
Keep in mind that the Holistic Spray is a great general-use spray, but more specific treatments may be required if you are dealing with certain pests, diseases, or environmental stressors.
