Watch out, pests on the march

If you have plants overwintering on the balcony, then check them regularly for pests. Aphids and whiteflies or spider mites particularly love the fresh new shoots. Tackle the egg stage and adult pests with BugFree Bug and Larvae Killer+.

Starting balcony plants from seed

Prick out the balcony seedlings at the end of the month. Always transplant 2 to 3 seedlings in small pots with a peat-free soil specially designed for sowing and growing young plants and cuttings and for cultivating herbs.

You can also water the small plants with Super Strength Seaweed Extract. This ensures optimal growth and vigorous root growth.

A home for beneficial insects

You can also attract beneficial insects to your balcony or patio with the Insect Hotel. The Insect Hotel gives insects such as wild bees, lacewings and ladybirds a home where they can live next to one another and they help to reduce pests on balcony and terrace plants.
