Product of the Month – Ant Killer Sachets
We’ve had a number of customers come to our information desk recently with ants in their pants – well those that have been sitting on their lawns recently! We’ve noticed a huge rise in the number of ants’ nests with many setting up home in our lawns. Our garden doctor advises the following. If you’ve got unwanted residents in your lawn or patio then we recommend Nippon Ant Killer sachets. They are very easy to use. Just dissolve each sachet in a watering can and apply to the infested area at the rate of 1 litre 2.5 square Meters. Each sachet will make 5 litres. Contains cypermethrin. If you have ants coming into the home then we recommend Ant Stop. Spray around doors and windows and areas where ants have been seen. Ant stop kills ants fast and stops them coming back. Contains deltamethrin. Use pesticides safely, read the label.

The event will be run by Parkfields school art department. The Learning Zone is located towards the right side rear of the lower building. Visitors should enter through the main garden centre entrance and turn left. Descend the stairs or ramp and head for the far corner of the building. We are looking forward to seeing students work and their interpretation of things man-made.
