Planting Calendar: September

“Gray water often contains cleaning products that will harm your plants or soil. If you plan to reuse water, it should not contain products with chlorine, boron, or sodium in them. These will poison your plants and ruin your soil for a long time to come. Are these in your cleaning products? Read labels, although this might not clarify what is in a detergent. Don’t use gray water containing water softeners, fabric softeners, bleach, or any product you’re not sure of. The term biocompatible has ben coined to mean safe for use in gray water, and there are products so labeled, but read labels carefully to make sure a product is in fact formulated for gray water reuse.”
