Post over the Easter holidays

Easter Deliveries - With 2 bank holidays (where there is no post), we will not be able to post perishable controls (nematodes and "bugs") over the weekend. We will continue to send sundry items out over the Easter weekend and any orders for nematodes i.e. Nemaslug, Nemasys etc and "bugs" will be posted on Tuesday 22nd April and will be delivered mid week next week (w/c 21/04).

Use Nemasug to control slugs naturally

Apply Nemaslug NOW. Conditions are perfect for applying Nemaslug®, so apply NOW to protect your plants from slugs NATURALLY. Nemaslug® contains natural nematodes & unlike chemical controls, are safe for children, pets & wildlife. Order NOW for delivery in time for Easter - the expiry date will be long enough, so that you can keep them until the Easter Weekend.

To keep your garden slug free, apply Nemaslug® every 6 weeks. Order our best-selling planned programme & we will AUTOMATICALLY top you up with fresh packs of Nemaslug® every 6 weeks.


Apply Nemasys to keep vine weevil at bay

Treat with Nemasys at least TWICE a year, BUT apply MORE OFTEN in warmer situations. Apply Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer as soon as you discover grubs or apply as a preventative measure, by treating when the grubs are at their most destructive i.e. in the Spring & Autumn. N.B. Sheltered gardens, conservatories, greenhouses or where you have had a vine weevil problem in the past, should be treated more often. Nemasys® is available NOW.


Apply Nemasys Leatherjacket Killer NOW

If you have a severe leatherjacket infestation, treat with Nemasys Leatherjacket Killer NOW. You can treat with Nemasys Leatherjacket Killer NOW, but you MUST apply Nemasys® Leatherjacket Killer at DOUBLE strength & you MUST treat in the Sept as well. Available NOW.


No Ants and Grow Your Own available NOW

Nemasys No ants & Nemasys Grow Your Own are available NOW. The warm weather means ants & pests which will attack your veg garden are already active, but the good news is our FULL range of nematodes are available NOW. Apply Nemasys No ants to your lawn & borders as the ants nests appear to keep them at bay. Use Nemasys Grow Your Own to keep your fruit & veg free from pests.


Bumblebees are available NOW

Bumblebees are one of the most important pollinators in the garden, pollinating fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs, but their numbers are decreasing. Position a LIVE colony of bumblebees in your garden to boost their numbers and ensure pollination of YOUR plants. A Beepol Hive contains a queen & approx 30 workers ready for release in YOUR garden. Bumblebees are available NOW!


Use Copper Tapes to repel slugs & snails

With new growth in hosta pots, its time to apply Copper Tape to repel slugs & snails. Slugs & snails hate copper, because of a reaction with their mucus, so apply self adhesive copper tape to your pots / containers to form a barrier slugs / snails will not cross. For slugs use Copper Slug Tape, but if your main problem is snails or a combination of the two then use our NEW Flexible Slug & Snail Tape. Wrap self adhesive copper tapes around the rim or base of pots to create a physical barrier slugs / snails will not cross.


Coir Pellets for sowing seeds

PEAT FREE Coir Pellets are better for the environment & your plants as they produce healthier, faster growing plants. Add water & watch them swell to make the ideal growing medium (3.6cm in diameter). It is always best to sow seeds into pellets, so you don’t have to handle the seedlings - once large enough, pot up or plant out the plant and the pellet. 50 Coir Pellets ONLY £5.99


Use a Pesclear Outdoors to repel pests

The Pestclear Outdoors uses ultrasound to harmlessly repel unwanted visitors i.e. cats, dogs, squirrels, foxes, deer & rabbits. The Pestclear Outdoors is inaudible to us, is safe and effective and will NOT affect fish or birds. It detects movement upto 70ft away & a burst of powerful ultrasound harmlessly scares pests away.


For blemish free roses use Sulphur Rose

As recommended by Dan Pearson in the Observer - Roses are a gardener's favourite, but often develop Blackspot & Mildew. Sulphur rose is a brilliant plant tonic, which is sprayed on & encourages healthy blemish-free growth. Spray your roses while dormant i.e. NOW, spraying the stems & ground around the roses & then spray regularly through the growing season.


LIVE pictures from Camera Birdbox

The mild weather means that birds are already looking for nesting sites, so I turned on our Camera Birdbox & it looks like their nest is almost complete. There is still time to position your own Camera Birdbox in your garden & our Standard Camera Birdbox was voted "Best Budget Buy" by Gardening Which?


Stop Wormcasts by applying Castclear

As featured by Helen Yemm in the Telegraph - Apply CastClear to stop wormcasts. This new liquid worm suppressant contains a unique combination of nutrients, soil penetrants & organic sulphur, which when sprayed onto the lawn deters worms for 20 days. Apply when worms are at their most active i.e. Sept to March, or after periods of heavy rain. Castclear is NOT a pesticide.


Add Mycorrhizal Fungi when planting

As used by Monty Don on BBC Gardeners World - This is the ideal time to plant roses / fruit trees & by adding Mycorrhizal fungi the plants will get established much quicker. Mycorrhizal Fungi produce a huge secondary root system, which will supply nutrients & water to the plant acting like a permanent fertiliser.


A Worm Works Wormery for kitchen waste

A Worm Works Wormery is the easy way to convert your kitchen waste into FREE compost & liquid feed. Supplied with 250g of WORMS, it will easily handle the kitchen waste from a family - simply add more trays to increase the amount of waste it can handle. Liquid fertilizer is drained regularly from the tap in the bottom.


Ladybird Breeding Kits available NOW

Our Ladybird Breeding Kit contains everything you need to breed your own ladybirds, which can then be released in your garden. If you already have the kit, simply order a refill or order the Ladybird Breeding Kit with EITHER 25 LIVE Ladybird Larvae & food or a VOUCHER. Ladybird Larvae are available NOW!


Control Red Spider Mite naturally

To control Red Spider Mite (RSM) in conservatories & greenhouses introduce Amblyseius andersonii NOW & then introduce Phytoseilius. Amblyseius andersonii is a low temperature predator, which only needs a temp of 10c. Overwintering RSM will come to life as temps rise, so be prepared & introduce Amblyseius andersonii NOW to lie in wait for the RSM. If RSM are already present introduce Phytoseiulus once temp is 16C.

Butterfly Breeding Kits

These re-usable kits allow you to watch all stages of butterfly development and as we use native British butterflies, they can be released in your garden. Caterpillars available NOW!


New - Urban Composter

This is the quick and easy way to deal with your kitchen scraps and leftovers. It turns your unwanted peels, off-cuts and leftovers into liquid feed and a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden. The Urban Composter uses an Accelerator SPRAY rather than Bokashi Bran used in “bran” based systems.

Make pots and plugs from newspaper

NEW - Make your own biodegradable seedling pots/plugs from nothing more than newspaper! Use them instead of plastic pots to sow seeds directly into or to pot on seedlings. Once established the whole pot can be planted directly in the ground where it will break down, so there is no root disturbance.


Hessian Flower Bags

Made from Hessian, these bags are biodegradable & more attractive than plastic versions & are great for creating colour all year round. Hanging bags are easier to prepare and look after than hanging baskets as they require less water and feed.


Repelling Garden Pests

Natural treatments, traps & repellers for a range of garden pests i.e. use Grazers to repel rabbits or use a Pesclear Outdoors to repel, deer, cats, dogs & badgers. Position a Waspinator to repel wasps or position Niteeyes to repel foxes. We also have a range of products to repel squirrels, rats, ants & many more.
