Talkback: Ants

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
I have millions of ants both outside and inside. they undermine my veg garden and Inside i have slight succes by using lavender oil in the floor wash. In the garden only by knocking out an entire nest do I advance a little.
I use only organics and find Tansy hasnt helped much, they actually infest the plant! Would like to know from Poodiecat how cinnamon was applied...sounds expensive tho. The old sugar/boracic trick works but encourages them to come and stay around for the sugar.

Talkback: Apple and pear scab

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
my pears have black fungal type marks on them which disfigures. In the past i have used a seaweed mulch and it worked but this year it has notworked, altho recently mulched some months ago.
One tree not mulched, after years of not fruiting is the only one in fruit. It seems they are all very old and i inherited them 20 yrs ago. Am at a loss what to do next.
