Pests

 

Pests are just that – pests!

Every gardener is the victim of them at some time, but at SGA we advocate prevention where possible.  Healthy vigorous plants are much more resistant to disease, so, if the pests have descended, as well as trying to get rid of them, it’s worth thinking about what you can do prevent the next lot of nuisances.  Make sure that your soil is healthy, there is good air movement around plants and there is a good range of predator insects e.g. lady birds, praying mantis, visiting or dwelling in your garden. Companion planting and having a diversity of flowers and scents can attract them and also attract birds which regard many pests as food.
