Organic Garden Pests Love Lavenders!
Organic garden snails and slugs love a cool place.
When the temperature is high; they would hunt for a cool location. Usually on fruit trees; or on vegetable plants.
It is a little surprised that they love also Lavender;
a herb plant that we thought they will not like the smell of it.
They came several each day on the bushes in our front yard.
Now you know where to find them; if you wish to remove them.
Female Spiders Mid-day Task!
Spiders are often seen spinning webs during the cool and dry period. Usually in late winter to early spring; and from late summer to late Autumn.
However, the females are preparing to lay eggs now.
They are quietly hiding under the leaves of the potato plants in a hottest afternoon.
When her babies are born; your leaves would be in holes and the plant would be covering with plentiful of webs and insects.
Now you have a choice to leave her alone or
remove her from the leaves.
Pond Plants are Damaging by
Plants in the pond are having their best performance now in the cool water and under the hot sun.
When the heavy wind blows; the plants would fall;
if they are not standing firm.
However, the goldfishes could knock down your plants during
their friendly hide and seek game.
