Garden pests

In the battle against all the creepy crawlies which would like to enjoy your plants as much as you do, it's a good idea to be well-armed. You'll find everything you need to fight the good fight in our garden centre in Sherington, Newport Pagnell: keep these essentials in the garden shed and you'll be prepared at all times.

Sprays: insecticidal soap takes care of sap-sucking aphids on everything from roses to cabbages: you'll find handy spray guns in our garden centre including organic sprays. We also stock tree washes for getting rid of overwintering larvae and eggs on fruit trees and bushes.

Barriers: keep pests at bay without having to kill them: a screen of horticultural fleece around carrots keeps carrot fly away, while garlic granules, grit and copper rings deter slugs.

Organic deterrents: in our garden centre you'll find a range of organic methods for tackling pests, including super-effective wildlife friendly slug pellets.

Timing: It is best to spray either early morning or late afternoon when bees, other beneficial insects dogs and children are less likely to be about!

Please ask the staff in our Sherington, Newport Pagnell garden centre for more information and advice about dealing with garden pests.
