This is so clever, Joan.  I am going to try it.  My family uses lots of soda bottles.

@Chris Breman, You may not be a member of science and I posted a video about the Netherlands there. To be sure you see it, National Geographic Megastructures North Sea Wall

As I remember that area, it is very low country and a lot of water. Google Earth shows Schiedam
Netherlands very near the coast and lots of water canals. Beautiful scenes around the area, a very pretty part of the world. My goodness, the effort it has taken to reclaim the land from the sea. Do you live on reclaimed land?

Spud, that is my understanding: vinegar kills plants. In fact, I use it as a weed killer in my planting beds. 

Amer, thanks for that information. The test makes sense.

It is not that bad, only concentration of acid should not be very high. To be absolutly sure that it is harmless to the plant, a little water can be added to further lower the concentration.

A one leaf test before actual treatment could also be beneficial.

Joan, I have heard vinegar can kill plants, so it may not be a good idea.

That makes me dream of my own livingroom orchard, Joan, impossible but a nice image!

Sentient, I agree, Neem oil works.

Here is a list I go to for quick reference:
