: I am interested in using tobacco juice as a bug repellant. Since tobacco mosaic virus can affect flowers as well as vegetables, is there any danger that I can introduce this virus by using the tobacco juice on my perennials?
No, you won't cause the virus by using tobacco juice. It's a virus and needs a host plant.
