Vegetable Garden

We are often asked if it is possible to have a bountiful vegetable garden without the use of pesticides. The answer is Yes! By designing the area carefully, you can maximise productivity and minimise pests. Raised beds take the strain out of working, as well as allowing you to create different soil types within the same garden. Mown grass paths prevent slugs taking your tender plants, as slugs will always target the youngest shoots. Other insect pests use the shape and smell of plants to home in on their target, so planting flowers and herbs amongst your vegetables will baffle them. Rotation ensures your plants do not grow stale in the ground, and prevents problems from overwintering grubs. This vegetable garden is now in its fifth pesticide-free year!
