|thanx everyone.. dh has been working the soil for me, he's not real big on gardening, just enjoys the fruits, veggies an herbs of my labor!
steven, there are various ways to spread D. earth, but 1st make sure you get garden grade that's not treated & not the same as the pool grade of D. earth. sometimes, like w/the aphids that i can see on my plant, i'll put on a rubber glove and apply directly on the aphids and stems/leaves of the plant. in pots, sprinkle directly on the soil, maybe swirl in a bit. just remember it loses its effectiveness when wet, so apply between waterings. and it does NOT hurt the earthworms.
