To Let: Ladybird Homes
Written by She Who Digs
Yup, we can all provided holiday homes for our ladybirds, She Who Digs shows us how:
If you’re interested here’s how to make a winter hideaway for welcome insects on the allotment.
Take the stems of your allium flowers and cut into 10cm pieces.
Bind together with an elastic band.
Cut an old 2litre plastic drink bottle in half, then cut off the top and bottom.
Slit each ring so that you can roll the plastic around the bundles and secure with staples.
Thread some garden wire through the tube and secure to make a handle to hang somewhere sheltered in the garden plot. Hey presto!
It's been too wet and windy this weekend to get onto the allotment or in the garden, but hopefully some sunshine is on its way!
