News from the Trading Shed

We have been busily restocking the trading shed and thanks to your support our stock of many items is moving quickly. Please be reassured that we are reordering to get ahead of demand.

Moth traps

Some fruit trees and leeks are best protected from invasive moths. Moths are the major cause of maggot damage in apples, pears and plums. Fixing a moth trap in place towards the end of May offers great protection. One trap will monitor up to 5 average size trees within a range of 15 metres (50 feet).

Leek moths which also attack members of the onion family fly from early April until late May and again from July until September.

A range of Agralan traps and refills are available at the trading shed. See price list below for full details.

Slug Pellets

We wish to clarify the situation and correct some of the misinformation on the web and on site regarding usage of slug pellets.

From April 2022  slug pellets containing Metaldehyde can no longer be purchased in the UK. At Pointalls we discontinued selling that variety of slug pellets several years ago and switched to organic brands. We only sell slug pellets which contain Ferrous Phosphate  which are approved for organic use in the UK and EU.

We think our organic slug pellets are both more effective and rain resistant. Uneaten pellets eventually dissolve and add their nutrient content to the soil.
