The Good, the Bad and the Ugly! These are found in all gardens and here you will get information on how to recognise them, what to do about them, managing them with eco-friendly advice.

Critter Repellent star[offsite link]
Critter-Repellent is a line of natural, eco-friendly products that keep cats, deer, squirrels, voles, shrews, and a host of other undesirables out of your garden, off your car, or out of the trash. Use natural scent to repel the opposition!

Disease and Insect Spray Recipes star
Recipes for insect and disease sprays you can make at home with common ingredients. Simple and inexpensive, yet very effective.

Fungus Gnats star
Fungus gnats are an indication that a plant is overwatered. Left unattended, they can do damage to your container plants, but they will irritate you long before that happens! Learn how to control and prevent this common pest.

Over or Under watering Plants star
Too much water and your plants will die … too little and your plants could die, a surface watering that starves the roots and your plants may die … for some plants having wet feet is fine, for others less is certainly more! How much is too much or too little or not enough? These tips will help.

Overwatered Plants star
Learn how to prevent overwatering.

Pest Control - GARLIC SPRAY star
Anyone can battle insects and diseases found in container gardens with comparatively innocent and harmless products and plants. These include garlic, chillies, liquid soaps, cooking oil and others. In this article we highlight Garlic in particular as a natural pest repellent.

Pest Control - TOBACCO SPRAY star
Tobacco pest spray for aphids. Do not use this! It is not organic, but besides that it is actively and directly harmful to your pots and containers; your soil and the environment. Eschew this old wives’ tale immediately. Actively ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.

Pests and Friends - BASIL star
Herbs are strong and fragrant growers in gardens, window boxes and containers, and more often than not able to withstand pest attacks. So what can you do if your herbs are taking strain? We use Basil specifically here but the advice stretches to lots else and other edibles. See what you think!

Potting Soil Pests star
Using a good soil for your patio balcony space is a crucial component of container gardening and getting the basics right is truly important. Here we speak of some of the pests that can be found lurking in potting soil.
