Lily bee­tle de­ter­rent

Amateur Gardening - - Gardening Week -

Scar­let lily bee­tles are pretty to look at but are in­creas­ingly a scourge of lilies, crown im­pe­ri­als and frit­il­lar­ies. This lat­est prod­uct from eco-com­pany Graz­ers de­ters the bee­tle from land­ing on its food plants and is safe for use around chil­dren and pets. Spray it on vul­ner­a­ble plants as they start to shoot ev­ery 7-10 days from March on­wards. It coats the leaves and re­pels lily bee­tles so they go else­where to feed and lay eggs. (RTU spray £6.99 for 750ml; con­cen­trate £9.99 for 350ml).
