Flower garden protection

The cold season has set in, and while you may be tucked up indoors, there are some garden pests you will need to keep an eye out for.


Hold back on pruning your roses and garden plants until late winter. This is typically when your plants are dormant and unlikely to develop tender new growth susceptible to damage in freezing weather.


Keep on top of weeds to prevent major problems with them in spring. Remove weeds from empty garden beds as soon as any appear.


Spray rose bushes with Efekto Rosecare 3 to combat common diseases and insects on your roses.
To protect your plants and foliage, cover with Wonder Plant Guard.
If conifer aphids are about, control them with Efekto Plant Protector or Efekto Insecticide Granules Plus.
