Q. How can I get rid of those white butterflies?
A. The Cabbage moth is generally only around from start of spring till Christmas. These pests are airborne and the only way to control them is to spray your patch with our Neem Oil mix. This can be done every 2-3 days to minimise infestations. Another suggestion is to cut out white plastic pretend white moths. By tying this white plastic to the top of a stick, the moths believe that there are too many others feeding already and will keep flying to find there own patch.
Q. How do I get rid of slaters without using chemicals?
A. To combat the slaters you will need to cut a yellow grapefruit in half and scoop out all the flesh. Then all you need to do is simply place halves around vegetable patch checking each morning for slaters underneath grapefruit halves. Scoop the slaters out and drown in a bucket of water or place into the bin.
Q. When should I pick my tomatoes?
A. You can pick your tomatoes when they are ripe and ready to eat. This way the tomato will have its full flavour. You can pick the tomato when it is turning red but you may not get the full flavour. For information on when to pick vegetables see the Harvest Guide.
