Club Root & Butterfly EggsClub Root & Butterfly Eggs

Birds:

Birds can cause an array of problems including eating seedlings, buds, leaves, fruit and vegetables.

Remedy:

Protect the plants from birds by covering them with netting or fleece. Scarecrows will deter birds temporarily.

Club root:

Roots become swollen and distorted, and leaves become pale and yellow and wilt easily. Plants may die.

Remedy:

Improve drainage and add lime to make soil more alkaline. Do not grow in affected soil.

Caterpillars:

A number of caterpillars will feed on brassicas, but the most common are those of cabbage white butterflies. You will usually see the caterpillars, if not, you will see the holes they make in the leaves. They will also bore into the heart of cabbages.

Remedy:

In mild attacks, or if you have only a few plants, you may be able to pick the caterpillars off. You can spray with pyrethrum, deltamethrin or lambda-cyhalothrin. Insect-proof mesh or fine netting (5-7mm mesh) can prevent egg-laying.

Spring is starting and the new season is here

 Hopefully by now we are now standing on the threshold of Spring and the new gardening season. The days are beginning to lengthen and although it may not feel like it at times the temperatures are slowly increasing day by day. More importantly the longer days are the real trigger to new growth and you will find that with the help of a little protection you can really go for those early sowings
