Nemaslug - the natural solution to slugs
NOW is the ideal time to start applying Nemaslug® Slug Killer - A mild, wet autumn followed by a warm, wet winter, means there are lots of slugs about. Nemaslug® works at temps above 5c and soil temperatures are well above this (they are 9c in Suffolk), so apply Nemaslug® Slug Killer NOW.
Order a Nemaslug® Planned Programme - Automatically tops you up with fresh packs of Nemaslug® every 6 weeks to keep your garden slug free & save money!
Use Nemasys to keep vine weevil at bay
Treat vine weevils with Nemasys at least TWICE a year, BUT apply MORE OFTEN in warmer situations. Control vine weevils naturally by applying 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. If you have a sheltered garden, a conservatory / greenhouses or you have had a vine weevil problem in the past, treat 4 times throughout the year. Nemasys® is available NOW.
Amblyseius andersonii available NOW
Use Amblyseius andersonii to control Red Spider Mite NOW. Amblyseius andersonii is a low temperture predator, which only needs a temp of 10c, so it can be introduced much earlier than other predators. Red Spider Mites (RSM) overwinter in the cracks & crevices in your greenhouse / conservatory coming to life as temps rise, so be prepared and hang sachets of Amblyseius andersonii to lie in wait for the RSM that have over-wintered. Available NOW.
Leatherjacket Pest Alert
The mild winter means that Leatherjackets are already attacking lawns. If leatherjackets are close to the surface & active & the soil temp is above 10c then treat with Nemasys Leatherjacket Killer NOW, but you MUST treat April & September. Order our new Triple Delivery & save money! The 1st pack is sent ASAP, with a 2nd following w/c 21/04 and finally a 3rd w/c 08/09.

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.

Stop Wormcasts by applying Castclear
Apply CastClear to your lawn to drive worms away without harming them & stop wormcasts. This new liquid worm suppressant contains a unique combination of nutrients, soil penetrants and 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.
Natural Rat and Mouse Repellent
Rats & mice cause a lot of damage & can spread disease. This repellent powder is 100% organic & is harmless to children, plants & animals. It works by confusing their sense of smell & taste. Ratty Rat repellent works immediately, is biodegradable & repels MICE too! Squirrel & Fox repellent available too!
Control Red Spider Mite naturally
Red Spider Mite (RSM) is a problem all year round in heated conservatories & greenhouses. Watch out for yellow / white spots appearing on the leaf surface & as the attack continues the leaves turn yellow & die. Eventually the whole plant is killed. As the number of RSM increase, webs are produced across the shoot tips. Introduce Phytoseilus AS SOON as the RSM are present. Available NOW.
