Natural Pest Solutions

Now that we can enjoy a little sunshine, we're going to be up close and personal with garden pests and weeds as they emerge. Make the most of natural solutions to stay on top of unwanted garden guests like these:
  • Snails & slugs
  • Beetles
  • Caterpillars
  • Codling moths
  • Leaf miners
  • Spider mites
  • Aphids
  • Whiteflies
  • And weeds!
If you're unable to identify pests, weeds and disease, we love a challenge; simply bring a bagged sample to one of our garden gurus and we'll point you in the right direction for treatment. Don't want to touch it? A photo will work.
