Tobacco Dust for Gardening

Tobacco dust is rich in nitrogen (N) (2.35%), potassium (K) (1.95%) and phosphorous (P) (937 ug/g) which can provide essential nutrients to the soil and plant. It has abundant quantity of organic content that exceeds the micro and macroorganism movement in soil which further increases the porosity of the soil; increase the infiltration of the oxygen. It increases the pH of the soil, maintain the electrical conductivity (EC) that does not leads to the salinity of the soil. Further it also increases the nitrogen (N) content in various vegetable & house-plants

Tobacco is a great insect repellent for the kitchen garden.  By simply soaking as little as a cigarette amount of tobacco in a quart of water and allowing it to soak overnight, the nicotine released in the water will create an all purpose insect repellent.

Aphid Control – Aphids are a real nuisance if allowed to thrive on garden plants.  Here’s a handy tip to rid your garden of them for good!

  • 1 c. compost
  • 1 c. tobacco (organic preferably)

Blend this mixture into the soil around the base of your aphid infested plants.

Peach Tree Borers – Sprinkling tobacco dust around peach trees will deter the dreaded peach tree borer from infesting your tree.

Leaf Roller – These greenish larvae make a home out of perfectly good leaves.  They can destroy plants of all kinds in a matter of weeks!  I have created an offering plate for birds every morning of these caterpillars.  But to easily rid your garden of them:

  • Use a mixture of tobacco dust, pyrethrum powder (dried pyrethrum flowers crumbled into a powder) and make a solution to spray on the leaf roller.

Garden Centipede – These litter guys will eat your young plants up in no time, so get rid of them with this simple solution:

  • Drench the soil with a mixture of water, garlic and tobacco. Caution: This is a very foul smelling, but potent combination.

Gophers and Moles – Did you know that gophers and moles hate tobacco?

  • Shred a package of non-filtered cigarettes and drop it down in the hole.  They cannot stand it!

Spiders – Although garden spiders are always welcome in my garden, it’s cousins are not allowed!  To rid your yard of spiders:

  • Boil 1 gallon of water and drop a package of chewing tobacco into the water and allow to cool.
  • Once cooled, strain the solution and use it as a spray around the yard and in the cracks of your home.
