By growing plants in a garden that attract and feed pollinators and predator bugs, the organic gardener is encouraging a natural balance to be maintained while also enjoying the benefits of an everchanging variety of flowers and herbs.
Insects such as Green Lacewings, Ladybugs, Praying Mantis and Predatory Wasps are all attracted to the nectar sources as well as the pests that you are looking to control, like Aphids, Caterpillars, Spider mites, Stink bugs, Scale insects and more without having to resort to using toxic chemicals.
Beneficial Barrier Seeds is a proactive method to reducing pest outbreaks, bringing vibrant biodiversity to your IPM regime. The blend of species covers all 4 seasons in full sun or part shade, and most varieties listed are self sowing so you can enjoy many more seasons of the benefits.
