Copper Slug Tape - The simple and effective way to protect plants in containers from slugs. This self adhesive copper tape can be wrapped around the rim or base of the pot creating a physical barrier that the slugs will not cross. Slugs hate copper, because of a reaction between their mucus and the copper, so the slugs that crawl up the outside of the pot are repelled and will crawl away. Each roll of slug tape is 4m / 13ft in length which will go round 4-5 x 30cm/12" pots.
Flexible Copper Slug and Snail Tape - Apply this self-adhesive copper tape to the rim of pots, around raised beds or even appy it to dog bowls to form a barrier slugs AND snails will NOT cross. Copper tape is very effective at repelling slugs AND snails (slugs and snails hate copper, because of a reaction between their mucus and the copper), but can be awkward to apply especially to uneven shapes, bevelled pot edges, but not this new tape. This new tape has a patented, striped surface which makes the tape very flexible, so it can easily be shaped around pot edges and uneven surfaces. It is also much wider than traditional tape (38mm), so it forms and even more effective barrier and a special adhesive bonds to almost any surface. Use this tape to stop slugs AND snails getting into pots, tubs, raised beds and even dog bowls - dogs can become infected with lungworm if they eat slugs and/ or snails. It's long lasting, looks good and stocks to any clean, dry pot. Each roll of tape is 4m in length, which will go around 4 x 30cm pots.
Copper Slug & Snail Rings - These copper rings will keep your plants free from slugs and snails and look attractive in amongst your herbaceous and vegetable plants. These solid copper rings are simply placed around the plant where they form a barrier which slugs and snails will not cross. Slugs and snails hate copper because of reaction between their mucus and the copper.When the slugs and snails come into contact with the ring they are repelled and will crawl away. Available in 2 sizes - Copper Rings Standard - Pack of 6 rings approx 10cm/4" in diameter and Copper Rings Large - Pack of 6 large rings approx 18cm/7" in diameter.
Copper Slug Bands - These Copper Bands repel slugs and snails in the same way as the copper rings i.e. slugs and snails hate copper because of a reaction between their mucus and the copper. When the slugs and snails come into contact with the ring they are repelled and will crawl away. These Copper Slug Bands have all the advantages of copper rings, but as they are made from much thinner copper, it means these bands can be easily clipped together to make much larger rings and they are much more flexible, so they can be bent into various shapes - ideal for awkward situations. These Copper Slug Bands will never wear out and will last for years. They are safe to you, your children, pets and wildlife. Available in 2 sizes - Standard Bands make rings 4"/10cm in diameter and the Large Bands make rings 7"/17cm diameter, but they may be clipped together for large plants.
Hosta Halos - Designed to slip over the tender shoots of hostas, delphiniums and other herbaceous plants. Also great in the vegetable garden to protect lettuce, rocket, runner beans etc. These simple plastic rings stop BOTH slug and snails. Simply screw the ring a few cms into the soil and the angled lip effectively keeps slugs and snails away from your plants. In trials in my garden I also found they protected plants from my over enthusiastic hoeing and mulching as well! The Hosta Halos can then be stored and re-used countless times. Dimensions - Height 12cm, diameter at base 13cm and diameter at top 18cm.
Slug X Trap - As reviewed by Alan Titchmarsh on Gardener's World & voted "the best slug and snail trap" in trials by the Telegraph. This simple, but effective trap is one of our best sellers. It will last for years and can be moved around the garden to protect different plants. Simply recharge with beer as necessary. Because this Slug X trap is mobile, it can be moved to a new location daily and as it has flat botton it can be used on any flat surface inc. lawns, patios and greenhouses. Will last for many years - simply recharge with any type of beer although slugs do prefer something hoppy and strong rather than lager!
New - Slug and Snail Trap with Bait - Use this new baited trap to catch BOTH slugs and snails. There is no need to use beer to attract the slugs and snails as a powdered bait is included - just mix with water. Use this new baited trap to protect plants in borders / vegetable garden – simply sink into position and then add the bait. Its large capacity means it does not need emptying too often – just tip the contents onto the compost heap. Comes complete with bait and additional bait is available separately, so the trap can be re-used time and time again.
New - Slug Trap Bait - A special mix of food grade ingredients, which will attract slugs and snails over a 2 metres radius and stays active for at least 14-21 days. Use it in slug & snail traps instead of traditional beer. Mix one heaped teaspoon full of bait with 240mls of water. In warm weather top up with water if the bait evaporates. Totally safe for children, pets & wildlife. Supplied in 100g tubs which will prouce approx 16 doses.

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 :-
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.
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).
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!
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.
Winter Tree Wash - The best way of reducing pest numbers in fruit trees is to apply this organic winter wash to reduce overwintering pests and their eggs. This winter wash is based on natural plant oils which "dissolves" the eggs of pests such as greenfly, red spider mite etc. Apply to top and soft fruit at any time through the winter when the plants are dormant. Suitable for organic growers everywhere.
Special Offer - Buy 500ml of Garlic Wonder Fruit Tree Spray and 450ml of Winter Tree Wash for £25.49 saving £2.00
Sulphur Rose - For blemish free roses the natural way apply Sulphur Rose. Roses are a gardener's favourite, but often develop yellow leaves and black blotches i.e Blackspot & Mildew, which make the plants unsightly. 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. Sulphur Rose MUST be applied to both the underside and top of all the leaves. Sulphur Rose - a 250g pack keeps 20 roses healthy for one season.

Grazers repels rabbits, deer, pigeons and geese - Grazers is a liquid which is sprayed onto the foliage of any growing plant, where it is taken up by the plant making the foliage unpalatable to grazing animals. This nutrient based spray can be sprayed safely on ornamental plants, shrubs, bedding plants, fruit, vegetables and lawns. As well as protecting the foliage, the nutrients in the spray help the plant heal itself and repair any damage already caused by grazing. It is odourless to humans and is safe for children, pets and wildlife. It can be sprayed at any time of year, but is most effective when sprayed on new growth. You can also spray new plants BEFORE planting them in the garden. 750ml Ready to Use Spray treats 30 sqm and the 375ml concentrate treats 1000 sqms of garden.
Outdoor Pest Repeller - This updated version of our best-selling Pestclear Outdoors uses ultrasonic technology to clear the garden of unwanted visitors including rodents, birds, cats, dogs, foxes, badgers, deer and Rabbits WITHOUT harming them. The Outdoor Pest Repeller is inaudible to us, is safe and effective and will NOT affect fish. The motion detector detects movement up to 15m 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 (mounting post and bracket included),so the sensor can detect pest movement in a 60 degree "arc" over the garden. The Outdoor Pest Repeller can be battery powered (2 x 9v batteries) or run from a mains adaptor (available separately). Special Offer - Buy a Outdoor Pest Repeller and a Main Adaptor and save £5.00.
FOXWatch Fox Repeller - Use the FOXWatch Fox Repeller to stop foxes damaging your home and garden, killing your pets and wildlife and disturbing your sleep at night. It is made in the UK and comes with a 2 year warranty. FOXWatch will repel foxes up to 12m's away making it ideal for use in smaller / urban gardens - it can protect a total area of 125 sqms. Site the fox repeller facing the area you want to keep clear of foxes and when the passive infra-red sensor detects movement of the foxes body heat, it emits a unique ultrasonic alarm (which is inaudable to humans) to repel foxes. The longer the unit is in place, the more effective it is. No effect on garden wildlife - most animals like ourselves cannot hear the Foxwatch alarm, this includes birds, frogs, hedgehogs and rabbits. It can be either or mains or battery powered - it is 30% more powerful when run off the mains, so it recommended that it is run from an adaptor where power is available.
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.
Solar Moler - Mole chasers are normally battery operated so as the battery runs down you're never quite sure if they are working! This one is solar powered - the ultimate environmentally friendly power source, so no more batteries! Powered by a small solar panel, it emits a discreet noise underground that the mole can hear. Being inquisitive the mole is initially attracted to the noise, but after a few days it will become increasingly irritated and move away. Simply pushes into the ground so can be easily moved around the garden driving the moles away. One Solar Moler treats over 600sqm/750sqyds.

Solitary Beehive - This beehive is designed specifically to attract non-swarming, solitary bees like the red mason and the blue orchard bee. By attracting both species of bees, you will ensure effective pollination of plants, trees, herbs and vegetables from March until September. This wooden Solitary Beehive (bees prefer wooden nesting sites) has a durable timber roof and base with wooden nesting trays in-between, which the solitary bees lay their eggs in. The following year the adults and their offspring will use the same nest again building up the numbers of bees in your garden each year. Site the solitary beehive 1-2 metres high, in a sheltered site which catches the morning sun and near scented plants. Height x 200mm width x 180mm depth x 160mm. Approx weight 1.5kg.
Best-Selling - Solitary Bee Tube – This high capacity nesting tube is for solitary bees like leafcutter and mason bees and is ideal for orchards / large gardens. This simple nest provides 30 tubes in, which these gentle non-aggressive bees lay their eggs. From March to August the female bees will lay eggs in the tubes, which will develop over the winter before emerging as adult bees the following spring. The males and females then mate and the whole cycle of the females laying the larvae in the tubes begins over again. Solitary bees are non-aggressive, so they are perfectly safe to encourage into the garden and will not be a danger to children or pets. Once the bees start to use this nester, it will be used year after year as the population increases. The cardboard tubes are designed to be replaced as needed (tubes are available separately in packs of 30) - using fresh cardboard tubes every season will ensure excellent bee health is maintained.
Bumble Bee and mammal nester - Position a Bumble Bee and mammal nester in your garden to attract more bees to your garden. Bumblebees often nest in old mice and vole nests, so it makes a sense to have a nester which is attractive to both Bumblebees and small mammals, so once the mice or voles have moved out the Bumblebees can move in (make sure you leave the old mouse nest in place). This handmade nester is made from FSC certified timber and recycled plastic and is finished in bright attractive colours, which have been shown to attract queen bumble bees. It comes complete with a landing platform and an overhanging roof that can be opened, so you can observe the colony. Site in a shaded area from ground level up to 2ms as required (full siting instructions are included). Comes with chopped meadow hay nesting material included.
Best-Selling - Ceramic bumblebee and Mammal Nester - This attractive ceramic bumblebee and mammal habitat is made from frost resistant hi- fired ceramic and is shaped like a traditional bee skep. It provides a dry and ventilated home for bumblebees and also mini mammals such as voles and shrews - bumblebees often seek out old mouse nests to nest in, so don't be disappointed if you get a mouse / vole or shrew nesting in it for the first year as this is will make it more attractive to bumblebees in the following years. The Ceramic bumblebee and Mammal Nester includes natural nesting material and instructions for siting and use. Dimensions - H 180mm x W 190mm x D 190mm.
