Less is best
There are many products to help keep our gardens and plants beautiful - but you can have too much of a good thing! Using fertilisers above the recommended rate results in the excess running off into local waterways. Always follow the instructions and use chemicals sparingly
Get smart to tackle pests and diseases
- Start by making sure you know what the problem is - your local garden centre can help.
- Try low environmental impact methods first, such as removing affected leaves by hand or using organic products.
- Leave the strong stuff as a last resort - and get expert advice at your local garden centre before using it
