We had a lovely intimate group of 12 for our online gardening workshop on Monday, 10th of August, so we could have a proper good chat about everyone’s veggie patch ailments and cures.
Peter and Kirsty recommend looking at the Royal Horticultural Society website for more information on biological pest control and lists of suppliers. RHS Pest and Diseases book is also an invaluable resource.
There are several of our previous workshops and blogs which also add to this topic:
- Gardening for Wildlife with Helena Simmons
- Healthy roots and shoots with Buglife
- Overview of pests and diseases with Andrew and Teresa Widd
- A gory tale of wasp and caterpillar
This workshop series is an informal collaboration between a number of local community food growers in response to increased demand for growing advice under covid-15 lockdown, including Edible Campus (Transition University St Andrews), Yellow Wellies Garden, Strathkinness Community Garden, Ninewells Community Garden, PLANT’s Tayport Community Garden. We would welcome any other contributors, please get in touch with Kaska on firstname.lastname@example.org.
