This episode we cover the news and take a detailed look at a range of garden products called biological controls. Rather than spending money, we recommend improving your range of garden habitats as the best way to deal with garden pests! We also talk about the beautiful, billowing wildflower Cow Parsley also known as Anthriscus sylvestris.
