GARDEN TIPS

Deter Whitefly

The French marigold variety 'Boy O Boy' if planted alongside your tomato plants will give off a smell that deters whitefly.

Stop Slugs and Snails

Slugs and snails do not like travelling over gritty surfaces and roofing felt is perfect to stop them reaching your plants.

The smell off the bitumen and the rough surface is too much for them.
