Early start with insecticide


Depending on the weather conditions and plant growth in the garden we have a first preventive spraying round in mid-April.

This year we had an early and fabulous spring with summer-like temperatures and little, actually far too less, rainfall. Due to this the insects started their activities very early already and it was no luxury at al that we started preventive spraying early in April.

To prevent mistakes due to mix up of liquids, containers or sprayers, we have a number of well marked pressure-sprayers for different purposes. The one shown is a four Liter or one Gallon one.

These are some of the previous post on this subject.
