Eco-friendly and safer to eat

The biological method can be expensive but safer

Herbs suffer pests and diseases just the same as other plants; this review is how to spot them and also how to deal with them. As you may have guessed I am very into organic gardening, which I use in my garden and on my allotment. It's not easy being organic as some pests are not very nice to...

Suger and spice and all things nice, thats what little girls are made of. Slugs and snails and puppy dogs tails, thats what little boys are made of.

Safe with pets and children

None

With two baby tortoises about to wander around the garden this summer, I realised I can no longer go sprinkling my slug pellets about willy-nilly. I have therefore had to consider the habits of slugs and snails very carefully and ways to dispose of them naturally. I remember sitting outside one...

“Getting rid of slugs”

published 26/06/2001

Environmentally friendly

Slightly more time consuming than chemicals

Six years ago I moved into a house with a major slug problem in the garden. Slugs, by the way, as you probably know, have healthy appetites for most plants, fruit and veg. Every time it rained and often when it didn’t, hundreds of slugs came out in droves – black ones, brown ones, striped and...

Not fast enough to run away

Difficult to control chemically

A sinister visitor is making it's way across the United Kingdom, quietly creeping from garden to garden in the dead of night, hunting out and voraciously consuming it's defenceless prey. It sneaks up behind it's victim, corrosive digestive juices flow from it's skin, it brings it's entire body...

Can stop you jumping onto a chair

Can spread diseases

If you like me,loveanimals/wildlife and feed the birds regularly in your garden,you might also attract these pesky little blighters,especially if seed and scraps of food are dropped by the birds. I've been fighting my own private war against these pests for quite a while now and have finally got...

Don't smell very nice, annual so need to propagate...

As you may or may not know I am a bird lover (and therefore detest cats in my garden). The reason for this is twofold. Firstly I feed the wild birds in my garden and hate to see them become target practice for one of my neighbours' moggies. Secondly when I cut the grass or do some weeding in my...

cheap and no threat to wildlife

I cannot use traditional pest killers or any chemicals in my garden as I have a pond and cannot risk them running into it! However this year I have been plagued by bugs!!. My beans grew and then were demolished almost overnight thanks to the slugs, so what can you do? For the slugs or snails an...

“It’s murder in the garden”

published 05/07/2003

A natural cure

A bit pricey

I’m 40 now, and my interests are more sedate. I watch football rather than play it, I watch my kids play on the swings in the park, and I watch my garden grow. That is I would, if only the little buggers would stop eating it! No not the kids, the insects! Greenfly and Slugs mainly, and this year...

There good tips.

N/A

This 'opinion' includes two tips at first, but more to come I hope: 1) Keep Greenflies away from your rose bushes; The best way to keep greenfly at bay is to dig galic cloves into the ground around where the roses are. Not only do you keep greenfly away you also get a fresh crop of garlic! If you...

Tesco doesn't sell soap nuts!

Soap nut juice kills slugs! It does, it's true. We're discovering more and more uses for soap nuts and the liquid all the time. How does it work? The detergent properties in the soap nut solution interfere with the slug's slime and kill the slug as effectively as salt would. First you'll need to...
