Directions for use:

6 - 30ml per litre of water.

Start at lowest dosage and gradually increase.


  • Can be used as a preventative or a mild treatment. For well established pest or disease issues i would recommend supplementing with Easy Neem or Fire and Fury.
  • Can be used every day if required. It is advised if treating issue to use at least every third day.
  • I generally don't use more than 2 teaspoons per litre and this is my go to concentration if i have used it on the plant before. For example a mild aphid problem can be resolved with 2 teaspoons per litre (if water is soft). 
  • Some plants may be particularly sensitive such as one's grown in a greenhouse or seedlings. Take particular care with these.
  • Using more than 2 teaspoon per litre is advised for serious pest and disease problems or for use on hardy outdoor grown plants/shrubs/trees. If you do use the above 15ml per litre it is advised to only do this very briefly. 
  • For a weekly pest management spray i would advise 1-2 teaspoons per litre.
  • Outdoors, it is best used early in the morning when the day is at it's most humid.

The idea is to keep the product in contact with the plant for as long as possible so it is effective. Therefore if it evaporates from the afternoon heat for example, the application will have been ineffective.


Making up a 1 litre batch.

1. Place 1 litre of water in a blender. Add 6-30ml of Neem Soap and blend for 5 seconds on maximum untill very frothy. 

2. It is strongly advised that you use blender/handblender but that isn't possible, you can shake/whisk/beat or blend until frothy. If solution goes cloudy your water isn't soft enough. 

3. Place in a sprayer and liberally spray the solution over every part of the plant and topsoil.

We will start to build a online database of growers results for specific pest's over the coming years. This will also include BUG BOUNTY'S. Customers will be refunded 100% for providing data on the products effect on specific pest's and diseases. More to come on this in the near future.
