Garden pests

In the battle against all the creepy crawlies which would like to enjoy your plants as much as you do, it's a good idea to be well-armed. You'll find everything you need to fight the good fight in our garden centre: keep these essentials in the garden shed and you'll be prepared at all times.

Sprays: insecticidal soap takes care of sap-sucking aphids on everything from roses to cabbages: you'll find handy spray guns in our garden centre. We also stock tree washes for getting rid of overwintering larvae and eggs on fruit trees and bushes.

Barriers: keep pests at bay without having to kill them: a screen of horticultural fleece around carrots keeps carrot fly away, while garlic granules, grit and copper rings deter slugs. Insect-proof mesh available off the roll or as a ready-to-use cloche keeps caterpillars and other pests off crops.

Organic deterrents: in our garden centre you'll find a range of organic methods for tackling pests, from super-effective wildlife friendly slug pellets to biological controls. We also stock a range of pheromone traps to hang among your plants for catching codling moth and other flying pests.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre for more information and advice about dealing with garden pests.
