This Year's Weather
Why we have introduced this page
One of the things that makes gardening in the UK so interesting is that the weather is so variable from year to year. The weather affects the order that plants come out, and it can cause great disruption to crops if we have late frosts such as we have had this year. Weather conditions are also crucial to plant pests, and every year we are faced with different problems. So we thought that this year we'd comment on the weather we've had and what effect it has had on the common plant pests.
Weather Report September 2017
September has started damp - lots of dew and lots of rain!
Which will upset a lot of the insect pests but is encouraging the slugs. ..... You might not be able to hit the largest ones with nematodes, but at least you can kill the young, and stop them multiplying!
Our customers are telling us there are a lot of chafer grubs around this year, and now is exactly the right time to treat lawns, before the first frost cools the soil down.
