Each month in the Soil to Supper Community I provide a Monthly Masterclass based on one of our weekly growing topics.
A few months ago I covered this topic and thought it would be a great podcast episode, as many gardeners find pests in the garden!
In this episode I’ll discuss…
- Identifying garden pests
- What causes pest problems
- Integrated pest management
- Building a resilient garden
Extra tips for pest free gardens include;
- Hand remove bugs if possible or blast small bugs away with the hose
- Use traps for fruit fly, slugs or snails
- Bag fruit after pollination and fruit set
- Examine pest problems to identify if it’s minimal damage or long term problems that need to be reduced
- Improve the health or soil, plants and your garden
- Create a healthy eco-system for nature to take care of everything for you!
Here’s some extra information that I refer to through the episode…
- Grow Companion Plants
- Episode 05 – Let’s talk dirt! Have a listen to this episode for ideas on healthy soil
- Home-made remedies for pests
- Fertiliser - feed your soil and grow more food. Read more here…
