Community Garden Update.
As a community garden, we strive to adopt sustainable gardening practises: saying goodbye to harmful chemicals and looking for natural solutions.
Over this summer, some of our flowers and vegetables have suffered with black fly and other aphid infestations. So, this week, we released 100 Ladybirds into the garden. Ladybirds are natural predators of aphids (greenfly and blackfly).
The ladybirds had travelled from Suffolk. Here are the pictures as we released them into their new Addiscombe home where we hope they will thrive, multiply and be happy!
Gardening group meet every Tuesday from 2pm – 4pm. Everyone welcome ( you don’t need to know anything about gardening). Entrance in Sefton road.
