NZ Gardener - - Plant Profile -


Popadome are an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly pest con­trol so­lu­tion which have been avail­able to UK gar­den­ers for a while but are just re­leased in New Zealand. Avail­able in three sizes, you can keep slugs, snails, birds, pos­sums, pests and more off newly seeded lawns, gar­den beds and fruit trees – and they can be trans­formed into mini green­house or frost cover. Buy at Oder­ings and Palmers or on­line at tru­lux.co.nz/popadome.


The open-sided in­sert al­lows ob­ser­va­tion of growth as the pota­toes grow. This grow­ing method has made the PotatoPot pop­u­lar in kinder­gartens and schools, as an aid for teach­ing the ben­e­fits of grow­ing our own food. Avail­able from Briscoes, Bun­nings, Mitre 10, New World, Repco, Stor­age Box, The Ware­house, The Clear­ance Shed and some gar­den cen­tres.
