Keeping your garden healthy can be a challenge, especially with summer pests trying to eat your harvest! Here are a few strategies to get the most out of your garden.
Thin your plants. Weak or stunted plants are attractive to insects and other predators. Not only will you make room for the healthier plants to grow, you will avoid many insect issues.
Seaweed. Seaweed is a fantastic natural fertilizer, and it also repels many species of bugs and pests! It can be used as either a spray or a mulch, and when applied it helps the plants develop to their full potential and ward off pests and various diseases.
Other Insects. Certain native insect species specialize in preying on common garden pests. Two of the best for this are Ladybugs and Praying Mantises, both of which are native to North America. Both of these species can be bought online to be released into your garden.
