In each of our books we recommend that you use ecological insecticides, fungicides and fertilizers to ensure that the garden and garden shed are safe for yourselves, children pets and beneficial wildlife.

The products – some home made – that we use are described in the books and if you have trouble tracing them in many cases will be able to supply you.

At this time of year it is important that fruit trees are sprayed against various flies, moths and fungal spores. For all trees we use a mix of neem oil and propolis solution. In the spring we mix in some nettle infusion which is a good spring foliar feed as well as a useful insecticide.

You can also use the two or three part mix on flowering plants, shrubs or trees.
