WHAT CAN YOU TRY?
Encourage wildlife into your garden to reduce the need for any chemical intervention. A pond will encourage frogs who will help keep slugs and snails under control.
Single flowered blooms make it easy for bees and butterflies to get to the nectar which in turn aids pollination. Trees and shrubs round the boundary aid privacy. Hanging baskets are a moveable feature and aren’t just for summer – a winter basket can brighten many a gloomy day.
