Protect Your Plants

It’d be great if growing veg was always straightforward, but believe me, you’ll often benefit from a helping hand!
This category has some of my favourite products to help you to protect your plants from the ravages of both pests, and the weather.
Some great growing tunnels, frames and cloches will, between them, help to provide a barrier to pests and that bit of extra protection from the weather.

I've included  a selection of some of my favourite products here,all of them have been tried and tested in my own garden and are things I myself use regularly.  I'm not that easy to impress, but these are things that really make a difference!
 Protecting your vegetable plants can make a massive difference to the end results -  preventing/controlling pests & guarding against adverse weather -  Who wants cateroillars and slugs etc to get the best of your crops? ! With a little extra warmth you can often hugely extend the growing and cropping season and get your plants off to a healthy and happy start.
I’ve included some biological controls too – natural organisms which can control many of the common plant pests ..and all without endangering children (or other humans!), pets or wildlife, and without any risk of chemical contaminants or residues. I’ve been a huge fan of biological pest control for many, many years, and am impressed by the results too. Biological controls are only suitable for certain situations, and for use at specific times of year, so do check the information I've given before you buy.
Great News!! All biological controls (inclluding Nemaslug and other nematode products) are  now normally dispatched within a day or two of your order being placed.
Most items are dispatched direct from manufacturer, so multiple purchases may mean multiple packages. (But we only charge you £3.95 total  p&p, however much you order).
