ASPIRIN HACKS ON PLANTS and GARDENING: Top 6 Benefits of Aspirin as Rooting Hormone + Others

The Medicine Aspirin, once used to be the
most commonly used Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory and Analgesic � now surprisingly has found
to benefit your garden. The Top 5 useful effects of Aspirin in gardening
� Coming up� Aspirin is chemically Acetyl Salicylic Acids
and salicylic acid is naturally found in willow bark and many other trees. So, what is the actual concept behind using
Aspirin in gardening or farming. Studies have found that the plant hormone
salicylic acid is released in tiny amounts when plants are in stress. So this concept has been utilized and many
benefits of Aspirin have been proven, which am gonna listout one by one. 1. Aspirin as a Rooting Chemical: Rooting hormones
like indole acetic and butyric acid are already discussed in my video on What are rooting
hormones � you can checkout that video. Well to improve the success rate of rooting
while propagating from cuttings, Simply take a teaspoon of cinnamon powder from your kitchen
and add it to 1 litre of lukewarm water and then drop in half a 350mg dispersible aspirin
tablet and stir it well. Then dip the cuttings into this solutions
for about 30 to 60 minutes and then plant those cuttings. 2. Aspiring Improves Seed Germination: A low
dose of aspirin water significantly improves seed germination and in one study the plants
treated with the aspirin water had a 100 percent germination rate, while the plants that weren’t
treated had more inconsistent results. For this drop half a tablet of a 350 mg Aspirin
into 1 liter of water and stir well and spray on the sown seeds or soak the seeds in it
for few hours before planting them. 3. Aspirin for Plant growth: The University of
Rhode Island sprayed plants with an aspirin water solution once every three weeks for
the course of an entire growing season. At the end, the plants sprayed with the aspirin
solution were found much bigger and had more fruit or flowers than their counterparts. 4. To keep Cut flowers stay fresh: Put a half
a tablet of aspirin in a vase with fresh cut flowers from your garden to help them stay
fresh longer. 5. Aspiring for Healthy Tomatoes: Spray your
tomato saplings or even soak the tomato seeds with the same mixture of water and aspirin,
before planting them in the ground for healthier, more disease resistant plants. 6. Aspirin spray also an anti fungal and treats
Blight in plants: Blight refers to a specific symptom affecting some plants like tomatoes
due to infections by pathogenic microrganisms, leading to rapid and complete chlorosis, browning,
then death of plant tissues such as leaves, branches, flowers and fruits. Now Coming to some Possible Side Effects of
Using Aspiring in Garden if used improperly: – Plants may develop brown spots and appear
to have burnt foliage. The best way to protect against this is to
spray early in the morning just before sunrise and not under direct hot sun. – Also keep Watching plants for their response
to the treatment. Not all plants may be suitable for the aspirin
regimen, but it has been shown that eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, and potatoes benefit the
most.. One last reminder is, technically, Using aspirin
is not an organic solution, however, it is a safe and very inexpensive option that contains
far fewer chemicals than the store-bought chemical products. Please try this in your garden and provide
your feedback in the comments section below. Also if you like the video, give a thumbs

  1. Very informative video, thank you. If a topical aspirin spray can possibly help control blight and fungus can a mild strap also be placed on the soil to prevent the overwintering of these diseases?

  2. Sir please mention the ratio of water with it safe for any flowering plants?pls rpl.

  3. I saw this video and I decided to try an aspirin solution on my hibiscus plant. It's a beautiful peach hibiscus and I didn't want it to die. The plant had a white powdery substance on some of the branches and leaves weren't growing on the lower stems. I eventually decided to trim off the diseased branches on the upper half of the plant and add this aspirin solution. I have been monitoring the plant for the past month and I'm so happy to see that new, healthy leaves started appearing on the hibiscus. I don't often see a peach hibiscus and I desperately wanted to save it. Thank you so much for this video.

  4. Hello wonderful, I like this, am now biggining to do some planting or better doing a kitchen garden in my yard, especially tomatoes, ladyfingers, peppers, cucumbers, packchoi, is your method suitable for me? Thank you so much, I want to have healthy growth in my kitchen garden. God bless you. Take care.

  5. Very good help ideas. I am going to try and spray my nectarine trees with Iodine to see if i can prevent curly leaf. Any thoughts…?

  6. Your points are very informative… I will be trying these out and reporting back. TY and God Bless the continued works of your hands x

  7. I need some Disprin/soluble Aspirin tablets. Not available in my location. Please help me get some. If any of you are kind enough to send me some of them (around 100 Nos.) I am willing to send you the cost and postal charges etc in advance. I will be very thankful to you.

  8. i'm looking for more information now. I just got done reading how acetylsalicylic acid has very little, if any, help for a cutting trying to root. salicylic acid (which is found in willow bark and aloe vera gel) does. big difference especially if you're trying to grow from a cutting and not get rid of a headache

  9. I have just recently discovered your channel , and I must say , it's interesting for me , as I am mostly working on bonsai , but have also a few other plants. I'm at the stage of trying to root some cuttings , softwood and hardwood , and I hope it'll be OK. So far so good. I see signs of new roots (big white chubby spots) on some cuttings. It's mostly ligustrum (2cm in diameter). From hardwood I also have put cuttings of ash , linden , elm. Softwood cuttings are mostly vines and jade plant.
    I'll also try this with watering seeds , as I planted chestnut (horse and sweet) , hazel , oak acorn and apple. Before planting them in soil , I put them in water , and toss the floating ones , as I read somewhere that those are the the bad ones (the ones that will never germinate) , wile the ones on bottom have much greater chance of germinating. This with putting in water I'm doing for the first time.
    Also , before I tried with fresh sweet chestnut seeds from market , but didn't had luck with germinating. All the way to one got rotten. So this autumn , I planted seeds fallen from the three , witch I accidentally found. It's the only tree I now for , in my town. Also , it's a rear plant in my country (Serbia).
    For the end , can anyone tell me his opinion about fresh almond seeds germinating. I'm thinking of buying them in the market. Would they germinate if I plant them in soil?
