Organocide is an organic insecticide and fungicide that works on 25 common pest insects, and 4 problem diseases for plants. Controls pests such as mites, whiteflies, aphids, etc. Also stops fungal diseases like powdery mildew, scale and black spots. Effective solution that works to prevent pests and disease naturally.
Derived from a unique blend of soybean extract and sesame and fish oils, Organocide is heavier and more effective than other oils, but safer to the plant. Organocide is one of the only products on the market that will not cause plant burn when applied on the hottest day of the year. Organocide replaces many “hard” synthetic pesticides and is safe enough to spray at harvest time or indoors.
Dilute 2 oz. of Organocide per gallon of water. Keep agitated. If other pesticides are to be added, do so after Organocide has been thoroughly mixed. Use a sprayer that will put out a fine spray. For Scale Insects, make three or more applications one week apart. Spray the trunk as well as the top and bottom of the foliage. Complete coverage is necessary. Once under control make a preventive application 1 to 2 times per month. Although dead, the scale will retain its color and appear to be alive. When dead, there will be an absence of insects in the “crawler” stage.
For use on lawns to control flea larvae and chinch bugs, apply at a rate of 4 oz. per 1,000 square feet of lawn and water in after application.

Here are a few pictures of our Barbados Cherry sprouts that we planted just over 2 weeks ago. They are standing tall and almost ready to be replanted into singular small pots. At this rate we hope to have them for sale next summer as juvenile fruiting trees. We have some available for purchase at the moment. Once in the ground they won’t hesitate to produce their delicious cherries. Don’t forget to save your seeds after eating them so that you can plant your very own Barbados Cherries!
(For best results make sure to dry out the seeds before planting them.)Below are our Barbados Cherry trees that are ready to be sold and planted in the ground.
Mulch is an organic protective cover placed over the soil to retain moisture, reduce erosion, suppress weed growth and provide a “finished” look to the garden. It will also serve to reduce the soil pH as it breaks down.
Mulch installation tips:
- Pull all weeds from garden beds prior to installing mulch.
- Apply roundup to any small weeds that remain.
- Redefine edges of garden beds by digging down 2-3″ so mulch remains in beds after installation.
- For maximum longevity Perfect Barrier Mulch should be installed at a minimum of 3 inches deep.
- Do not apply mulch directly to the base of any trees, shrubs, etc. as this will promote rotting of your plant material.
- Once it is installed, smooth the mulch with a leaf rake in order to create a beautiful evenly mulched garden bed.
- Enjoy the beauty of your yard longer before replenishment.
The soils in the Turks and Caicos Islands are based on coral sand and fragmented limestone, which by definition have a high pH. This is not good for plants because it blocks the intake of nutrients that are in the soil. The pH can be reduced by adding organic material such as compost, manure or peat moss. A sulfur based “soil acidifier” will also reduce the soil pH. Here at Sunshine Nursery we have a range of products for you to choose from to help equalize your soil’s alkaline level and keep your garden flourishing.
