…is for Red Spider Mite. There has been a last-minute amendment to this issue of the Garden Pests Series; initially, ‘R’ was going to stand for rose black spot. However, after a little more detailed research today, it came to my attention that rose black spot is in fact very similar to what was covered […]

…is for Quince leaf blight. I’ll be honest with you; when researching for this list of 26 garden pests, one for each letter of the alphabet, I had an inkling that the letter ‘Q’ would be a problem! Think about it: it is a high-scoring letter in Scrabble and more to the point, it is […]

…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 […]

After composing a recent blog post in our Garden Pests Series relating to the over watering of plants, it got me thinking about the volumes upon volumes of water just one gardener uses for their past-time. After doing some research into it, heavy water use can really put a dent in one’s pocket. Of course, […]

…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 […]
