we have great results here using nettle, yarrow, lavender, lemon blam, chamomile, sage, comfrey and a few others. they are made and used all the time and have been doing it for at least 5 years now. i love the results and specially how it fits the permaculture lifestyle as they all have more than one use or are eatable. and most grow wild here.

thanks for the link btw!

It doesn't mention tobacco or jicama, both powerful insecticides (the latter has been taken off the USDA organic list, oddly enough, even though it's pretty easy to grow organically), and doesn't mention plant sources for herbicides like ailanthus.

I like it, though! It's a good format, and has a lot of useful info.

Do you mix them all together, Soil? Or you talking different plants for different apps?
