Identify the PestThe most effective anti-pest strategies begin with knowledge. What is getting into your garden and causing so much havoc? You can figure it out by looking at the crime scene. First, look at the plants and ask these questions:
- What was eaten?
- What was left behind?
- What do the chewed parts look like?
Try Gardening in PotsIf the responsible critters are small, you can protect your plants by putting them in containers. Decorative ceramic pots are a classic option, but you can grow greenery in any container with proper aeration and drainage:
- Plastic pots
- Feed troughs
- Grow bags
- Trash cans
