There are a lot of things that can go wrong in gardening: lack of yields, rotting roots, bolting plants and more. But perhaps the most annoying of them all are pests and diseases. These unwanted guests can spoil your produce, deprive your plants of nutrition and prevent optimal growth. This Blacktown workshop happening next week will help you navigate through the issue.
Managing pests in the garden will teach you the organic ways of solving common pest problems like black spots, whiteflies, grubs, weeds and more with techniques such as homemade pesticides, companion planting and crop rotation. If you have some greens sitting in your yard with pest issues, you can also bring them to the workshop for a fix.
The workshop is free. For more information, visit the Blacktown City Council website.
