Adult Ladybirds and Ladybird Larvae - Ladybirds are the best known beneficial insect and a welcome sight in the garden, where they happily munch away on greenfly and other tasty pests. By releasing ladybirds (available as adults or larvae) in your garden you can boost their numbers, which will lead to a permanent decrease in the number of pests in your garden - each ladybird will eat about 5000 aphids and will soon produce ladybird larvae which in turn also eat aphids. Ladybirds are available between April and AugustAvailable NOW!

N.B. The warm weather means there are LOTS of aphids about, so demand for Ladybirds is high, so please allow up to 7 days for delivery.

 
Adult Ladybirds - We supply native British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds in tubes / tubs /packs of ready for release in your garden. Green Gardener only supplies native British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds - we do NOT supply Harlequin ladybirds. The ladybirds are sent by 1st class post with food included. Ladybirds are natural predators of aphids (greenfly and blackfly) as well as being a gardener's / youngster's favourite.  By releasing ladybirds, you can permanently increase the number of these beneficial insects in your garden and decrease the number of pests. They should be released directly onto aphid infected plants or dotted around the garden either early in the morning or late evening. Available NOW!

SB Invigorator - Use SB Invigorator natural spray to control pests during the autumn and winter when it is too cold to use beneficial insects i.e. in unheated greenhouses / conservatories. There are no harmful chemical residues left behind, so beneficial insects can be introduced AS SOON as the temperatures are warm enough in the spring.

SB Invigorator - This 'three in one' natural spray controls a range of pests in a safe and effective way PLUS it also controls fungal diseases and it contains a foliar feed to help plants recover from pest attack. SB Plant Invigorator is not only highly effective, but it is also biodegradable and non toxic. As there are no harmful chemical residues left behind, beneficial insects can then be introduced as soon as the spray has dried. SB Plant Invigorator can be used in the garden, conservatory or in the greenhouse and most importantly can be used on edible plants - pick and eat straightway.


 

SB Invigorator is brilliant at clearing heavy infestations BEFORE introducing a natural control. Here the spray has been applied twice at 2 day intervals to kill a heavy infestation of mealy bug before introducing cryptolaemus. The first spray removes the protective wax from the pest, which normally makes it so difficult to control and then the subsequent spray 2 days later kills the pest. As no harmful chemical residues are left behind, the cryptolameus were immediately introduced to give on-going pest control.

SB Invigorator is available as a 500ml ready to use spray, as a 250ml concentrate (makes 25 litres of spray) or as a 1 litre super concentrate (makes 500 litres) for use in your own sprayer.

"Hi guys just wanted to say that your  SB Invigorator has magical properties ...it has yet again brought my tomatoe plants back to life after spider mite damage. Without it I might have given up growing tomatoe and pepper plants all together. Purchased the slug nematodes a few weeks ago and haven't seen any slugs since not even on my freshly planted out courgette and squash plants which normally act as slug attractants... more magic from the green gardeners.
Love you guys."

Solo Sprayer - This unique 2 litre sprayer has an adjustable nozzle allowing you to direct the spray exactly where required, so it is ideal for applying natural sprays. The Solo Sprayer features a trigger lock for continuous spraying, a large curved pumping handle for ease of use and a large opening for easy to filling. It also has an automatic pressure relief valve for safety. Aim the sprayer directly at insect pests or when applying fungicides such as sulphur rose or our new mildew control aim at the top of the plant and then adjust the nozzle and spray the underside of the plant covering the leaves completely. This gives maximum protection from attack by fungal diseases whilst using the minimum amount of spray.

New - Red Band Spider Mite Traps™ - These Red Band Spider Mite Traps™ are the simple and effective way of trapping / monitoring adult red spider mites. It works on the very simple basis that red spider mites always climb upwards searching for food and this trap uses this behaviour to lure the mites onto a very sticky waxed pad suspended above the plant with a string trailing down into the top of the plant. They are ideal for :-

  1. Control red spider mite throughout the year i.e. including early / late in the season when temperatures are not warm enough for a natural predator such as Phytoseiulus or Amblyseius andersonii
  2. For monitoring crops i.e. leave the traps in place and once adults are spotted, natural predators can be introduced.
  3. Long term protection – leave these traps in place to give on-going control and only need to be replaced when full. N.B. Can even be used when natural predators are already in place.

New - Red Band Spider Mite Traps™ - Simply suspend the very sticky waxed pad 30cm / 12" above the plant with the string trailing down into the top of the plant and as the mites move to the top of the plant, they continue climbing up the string dangling from the trap and onto the sticky wax pad from which there is no escape! The sticky pads only need to be replaced when they are covered in red spider mites, so it is a very simple and cost effective method that works! Be careful the trap is very sticky, so suspend it in the right position before removing the protective backing and keep it away from heaters and lights. Ideal for tomatoes,  cucumbers,  oranges,  lemons and plants in hydroponic systems. Available in packs of 5 - use one trap per infected plant.

 

N.B. Once conditions are favourable, Phytoseiulus or Amblyseius Andersonii can be introduced to give on-going control.

Special Offer - Buy 50 x Plant Fibre Pots and 50 x Coir Pellets for £15.49 saving £5.00

   

Coir Pellets - These compressed coir pellets are ideal for sowing seeds or for rooting cuttings. Add water to them and watch them swell to make the ideal growing medium (3.6cm in diameter). It is always best to sow seeds into individual pellets, so you don’t have to handle young delicate seedlings as it is so easy to damage them. Once large enough, pot up or plant out the plant and the pellet. For small seeds such as begonia and lobelia sow a tiny pinch of seeds into a coir pellet. For larger seeds such as tomato simply drop 1 or 2 seeds into the a coir pellet. I prefer to cover these larger seeds with a sprinkling of vermiculite. For cuttings of tender perennials such as fuchsias, geraniums, verbena etc. (many of the plants used in baskets and tubs through the summer will provide cuttings), push the cuttings into the coir pellets and place in a propagator or simply cover with a plastic bag and keep on a warm windowsill. They should root in 2-3 weeks.

           

Plant Fibre Pots - These new environmentally friendly pots are made from 100% natural plant fibre’s and are a great alternative to plastic pots. They start off just like plastic pots and are robust enough to raise plants in and will not fall apart when watered. As the plants grow, the roots grow through the sides ready for potting on or planting out – no root disturbance and no plastic pots for you to throw away. Once planted out the pots decompose completely without leaving any remains behind – its quick and easy and good for the plants and the environment. These pots are 10.5cm in diameter and are ideal for sowing seeds directly into or for potting on plants started off in our coir pellets (see above). They are also ideal for rooting cuttings in. When the plants are big enough, just pop the plant and pot into its planting hole and the pot will biodegrade.
