Tips and tricks from this month’s market: home-made fruit fly traps and vertical gardens

Thank you to everyone who braved the rainy weather and came down to the stall this morning. Today I was asked several gardening questions and I thought I should put up a few links to articles about some of what we discussed.

I spoke to one person about a home made fruit fly remedy and here is a link to a forum which describes a recipe. There are many home made recipes if you Google “Homemade fruit fly trap”.

Another person was looking to use their small city balcony to plant a few vegies and I mentioned that you can use a wooden pallet stood upright to make a vertical garden. Here is a great step-by-step guide on how to make one.

See you all next month.
