CLEVER PEST CON­TROL

South African Garden and Home - - Greenhouses For Small Spaces -

Sar­race­nia (pitcher plant) Ben Crory of Colour­ful Splen­dour Nurs­ery in Craighall Park, Jo’burg, has an in­ge­nious so­lu­tion for pest con­trol in green­houses – car­niv­o­rous plants. “Pitcher plants such as sar­race­nia are very ef­fi­cient at catch­ing many pests, in­clud­ing slugs. They thrive in a green­house and all they need is a tray of wa­ter for the pot to stand in.”
