How can I get rid of those white butterflies?
The Cabbage Moth can mostly be found from the start of September until December. These pests are very territorial.
One of the ways to control them is to spray your patch with our Neem Oil mix. This can be done every 2-3 days to minimise infestations. A cool Summer will prolong the time the Cabbage moth is around. If this is the case, you may be required to spray Neem Oil in between fortnightly maintenance visits.
Alternatively, cut out white moth shapes using recycled white plastic containers and tying them to the top of a stick. This will make the real moths believe that there are too many moths already feeding on the crop, so they will keep flying to find another source of food.
How do I get rid of slaters without using chemicals
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.
When should I pick my tomatoes?
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.
