About this Garden Plan

In my Sucessive Garden the pests i have to deal with are Aphids,Cabbage worms,blub flies,carrot Weevils, earworms and thrips. Some of my plants such as Celery and peas dont have many pests but my beans will be prone to rotting. __________________________________________________________________________________________ In my beneficial part of my garden i have planted just flowers . I planted the flowers as a source for the bees i have set up around the garden to assist with the pollination. It also double ties with helping take care of pests because some of my floers are toxic to its preadators. My flowers: Lavatera Pansy Salpiglossis Snowdrop __________________________________________________________________________________________ In my Fruit garden i am planting: Cantalope- (Aphids/ Pickleworm)---pests Strawberries- {Slugs/Snails/Aphids) Rasberries- (Aphids) Pumpkin- (Beetles/Squash Bugs) For dealing with my pests in my fruit garden i will be using a mesh covering to help keep them out, as well as some Bacillus Thuringiensis to keep other threats from harming my plants __________________________________________________________________________________________ For my scientific Companion Veggie Gard. i used the Trapping Crop and the Biochemical Pest Trapping Crop: The crops i used for this method are Tomatoes & Chinese Cabbage. The Tomatoes are my distraction to stray the pests of the Chinese Cabbage because they do prefer Tomatoes over the Cabbage used. Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixiation: The crops used for this was my Beans(dry) and Peas. I chose these two companions because they give off enough nitrogen to help the other plant thrive and survive they are actually helping each other. __________________________________________________________________________________________
