Miniature Garden Troubleshooting

Before you reach for that bottle of chemicals to solve your issues, please try a natural approach.

Top Tip #1: Any bugs that have moved in are doing so because they are comfortable and have a food source. Make it uncomfortable by disturbing them every chance you get (- pinching them off with your fingers, sloughing them off or giving them a sharp spray of water works too -) and they’ll move along to find an easier life.

Top Tip #2: Bugs and disease are a sign of the plant’s stress. A healthy plant can ward-off most invasions. The very first thing to do is to assess your situation to find out why the plant got so stressed-out. (Lack of water, light &/or air?) You may have to gently take the garden apart to save your plants, but as you do, see if you can figure out what happened so you can learn and improve your gardening knowhow.

Squirrels, however, are a completely different issue. :o) See below.
