The elegant union of ornamental and productive.

Is anyone else noticing a bit of an earwig plague at the moment in Melbourne? We see them everywhere. They are always quite prevalent in spring, but this seems out of the ordinary. A little trick if you choose to ”get rid of them” and don’t have chickens to turn them into eggs: A tiny bit of beer at the bottom of a bottle just does fine. Position the bottle for easy earwig access and they will fall in and won’t be able to leave again. We have a lot on at the moment so if you need a hand drinking the bottles, just let us know
