Keeping on top of hungry pests
PESTS are having a field day now and, if allowed, will be tucking into lots of fresh young greenery.
I use wool pellets to deter slugs from vulnerable crops and ornamentals.
There’s also something very satisfying about squishing colonies of aphids between your fingers – especially if you’re having a bad day!
You don’t always need chemicals for pests. Harvest the powers of their natural predators – birds, hedgehogs, amphibians, wasps, lacewings, hoverflies and ladybirds – and create a healthy garden full of natural interest.
