…is for Pea Moth. The first Garden Pests Series blog of the week; this post is more aimed at those gardeners who grow vegetables. If that mean you, whether you grow in your garden or allotment, this is definitely of interest to you. Today, the letter ‘P’ stands for pea moth, an organism that can […]

…is for Over watering. So far in this blog series, all featured dangers to your garden have been those that in nature. However, as gardeners, we must also bear in mind that even though our actions may be with the best intentions, our efforts can have adverse effects. Potentially, this can revolve around the watering […]

…is for Nutrient deficiency. The next in the popular blog series by Oakleigh Manor! In this post, ‘N’ stands for nutrient deficiency. It isn’t so much a ‘pest’, which itself evokes mental images of small insect-like creatures. More of a sad reality. This is mainly because, unlike some of the previously-featured pests in this series, […]

…is for Mole. Possibly the most well-known garden pest the gardener has happens to be one that they rarely see in the furry flesh! Ironic? Yes, but the irony of the situation doesn’t stop moles and their resulting molehills potentially being a bane of every gardener in the country. They even upset owners of football […]

…is for Lily Beetle. We’re quickly approaching the halfway point in our Garden Pest Series; of the 26 posts that this series will consist of, this particular post is number twelve. For me, it feels like the time has flown by; I have really enjoyed writing these and I hope you have equally enjoyed reading […]

…is for Katydid. What’s the life of an online blogger without bending the rules once in a while?! My point is, in the eleventh issue of Oakleigh Manor’s Garden Pests Series, we will be using artistic licence once more, if you will. You may have noticed in previous issues that some garden pests featured are […]

…is for Jackdaw. In the letter ‘J’ edition of our Garden Pests Series, we are yet again using artistic license, if you like. Because it was devilishly difficult to find a genuine garden nuisance beginning with ‘J’, we will be focusing on birds in general, not just jackdaws. Nevertheless, our marketing team are still immensely […]

…is for Invasive Species. Out of the garden grievances that have been included in our blog series thus far invasive species are probably the most broadcast in other forms of the media. You may recall a blog post from Oakleigh Manor not too long ago regarding invasive species? Well, put it this way: researching for […]

…is for Honey Fungus. Since I was on site yesterday with our head Landscape Architect and as a result was unable to compose the next instalment of the Garden Pests Series, I’m treating you to one today! This parasitic fungi is another danger in the garden where there is no chemical treatment currently available to […]

…is for Garden Ant. Well, our Garden Pest Series is well and truly established now; this is our 7th already! It’s gone quickly for us, as I have really enjoyed writing them! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them, too. The research for each garden nuisance has certainly been both fun and educational, as to be […]
