Protect Your Garden from Pests and Weeds
Protect Your Garden from Pests and WeedsSusanna Rosén
All growers and gardeners encounter unwelcome visitors. Perhaps deer get into the tulips or thrushes strip the berry bushes. But snails, aphids and other smaller creatures can do a lot of damage to vegetables and flower beds as well. Not to mention weeds such as ground elder, lupine and Japanese knotweed, which can take over an entire garden if not dealt with in time.
This book employs environmentally friendly methods, such as manual removal or encouraging pests’ natural enemies in various ways. Try to stay one step ahead. By setting up barriers, attracting useful animals to your garden, and growing plants that act as deterrents, many infestations can be avoided. If you work with nature, you will have more time to enjoy your garden, and make a pleasant environment for the pollinators that allow your trees and shrubs to bear fruit.
