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. We have BOTH Adult Ladybirds and Ladybird Larvae for release in your garden NOW.
N.B. We get a set number of Ladybirds each week, so they are allocated on 1st come 1st served basis, so please allow 5-10 days for delivery. If you do not get them this week, you will be top of the list for delivery next week.
Adult Ladybirds - We supply native British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds in tubes / tubs of 25 ready for release in your garden. Green Gardener only supplies native British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds - we do NOT supply Harlequin ladybirds. 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.
Ladybird Larvae - The larvae look nothing like their parents, but the have the same appetite for soft -bodied garden pests such as aphids (greenfly and blackfly). They are ideal for releasing directly onto plants heavily infected with aphids - as they they are unable to fly and will stay where you put them. Supplied in trays of 50, they are sent by 1st class post.
Controlling aphids in conifers, trees and hedges - Conifers often develop unsightly brown patches and the R.H.S. confirms that Cypress Aphid (a type of Greenfly) is the cause in over half the cases. Aphids (Greenfly and blackfly) attacking trees is another BIG problem - control BOTH by releasing Ladybird Larvae instead, which are available NOW. Being mobile, the larvae will quickly spread out into the canopy to search out and devour aphids - they arrive very hungry and will quickly hunt out aphids wherever they are hiding. Introducing the larvae is easy with our NEW quick release system of 100 larvae with a cotton release bag.

Natural Sprays and Greenhouse Fuming - These natural sprays and garlic candles are chemical free and will not harm beneficial insects i.e. ladybirds and lacewings :-
Garlic Greenhouse Smoke - Fumigating a greenhouse with a sulphur candle has been the traditional way of clearing pests, but now you can replace these sulphur candles with a chemical-free garlic candle. This natural garlic candle is used in the same way as a sulphur candle i.e. simply place in your greenhouse, light the fuse and leave overnight. HOWEVER, unlike sulphur candles you do NOT need to remove the plants before using the Garlic Candle and they are safe to use in aluminium greenhouses and polytunnels. Garlic Greenhouse Smokes do not leave any smell or visible deposits in the greenhouse and they will not taint any fruit and / or vegetables. Each Garlic Greenhouse Candle is sufficient to treat approximately 20 cubic metres (equivalent to a 3m x 2m greehouse).
SB Invigorator - Controls pest underglass and outdoors and used regularly will reduce fungal diseases such as mildew PLUS it contains a foliar feed to help plants recover from pest attack. SB Invigorator is not only highly effective, but it is also biodegradable and non -toxic ,which means it can be used in the garden, conservatory or in the greenhouse and on edible plants too - pick and eat straightway. It is suitable for use throughout the year. SB Invigorator is brilliant at clearing heavy infestations BEFORE introducing a natural control.
Citrox disinfectant - This natural disinfectant contains extracts of citrus fruit and is effective against a range of bacterial and fungal diseases. Citrox is ideal for cleaning greenhouses and conservatories (including glass, plastic, concrete and brickwork), water butts, bird tables and pots and trays. Citrox is ideal for keeping bird tables clean to minimise the spread of diseases. It can also be added to waterbutts (25ml per 100 litres of water) to keep the water clean and free from disease.
Clearway - A non chemical treatment for algae and mould that really works. Clearway removes algal growth and mould and once clean, protects surfaces from further growth for at least 6 months. Use on existing patios, decking etc., but because of it’s protective action we recommend you also apply it to new structures, so they never get dirty in the first place. Keep your new decking looking like new by treating it BEFORE it gets dirty! Clearway contains no bleach or acids so is harmless to you, your pets and your plants - so if some runs off your patio onto the border it will not harm the plants. Simply, remove any loose debris, spray onto surface, allow to dry and walk away!
New - Garlic Wonder Fruit Tree Spray - This spray contains organic extract of garlic blended with seaweed and citrus, which will stimulate growth and encourage a healthy root system, so the plants are much MORE vigorous, produce MORE fruit and are MORE resistant to attack from both insects and fungal diseases. This new spray is suitable for all fruit trees and bushes and being chemical free is safe to use and is safe for the environment, people, pets, wildlife and beneficial insects. Supplied as a concentrate, simply dilute with water and then spray onto your fruit trees and bushes when the first signs of leaves appear. Within minutes the treated area will become odourless and Garlic Wonder will not taint the flavor of the fruit. Re-apply every 7-10 days throughout the growing season until you are ready to harvest.
N.B. Apply Garlic Wonder Fruit Tree Spray throughout the growing season and then use a Winter Tree Wash in the winter.

Sulphur Rose is a brilliant spray on plant tonic which encourages healthy blemish-free growth. Spray throughout the year to encourage blemish free growth - Spray your plants during the dormant season, spraying the stems and the ground around the roses and then spray regularly through the growing season. During periods of high humidity and above average temperatures, apply every 14 days because these conditions encourage the spread of diseases.

The Pestclear Outdoors is inaudible to us, is safe and effective and will NOT affect fish or birds. The motion detector detects movement up to 70 ft. from the unit, which triggers a burst of powerful ultrasound, harmlessly scaring the intruder away. Site the unit on a wall, fence, post or tree ,so the sensor can detect pest movement in an "arc" over the garden. It can be battery operated, so it can be situated anywhere in the garden and it has 3 settings, so you can choose which pests the unit will deter.
Nite Eyes - Repel Foxes and Badges with Nite Eyes as featured on BBC's Country File -This solar powered unit repels both foxes and badgers by mimicking the eyes of a predator. The solar powered unit charges by day and then comes on automatically at dusk (it automatically turns off again in the morning and starts charging again). Once it comes on , the two red LED lights in the front start to flash and it is this flashing of the lights that stops the fox / badger. Nite Eyes do not harm the animals, but they will feel threatened, because they believe the flash to be the eyes of another animal and it is this sense of being watched that the animals do not like so they turn tail and run away. Nite Eyes will not harm wildlife or domestic pets / poultry. The units are maintainance free, measure 10cm x4.5cm x 2.5cm and are fully weatherproof.
