By focusing on the health of our plants, we can increase the level of resistance they have against pests and diseases. Physical barriers will be demonstrated for protecting young seedlings, recipes shared for effective biological controls, plus a beneficial species list to attract predatory insects. Common pests and diseases will be covered.
Registrations close on 21 August.
