Thorny Problems - A plague of flies

The best way to protect seedlings from this pest is by using nematodes via a soil drench: Grow Your Own, from Nemasys (obtainable from, among others, Harrod Horticultural – harrodhorticultural.com). It is only available from April (when the soil generally reaches the correct temperature for the nematodes to become active). Applied every five weeks, Nemasys GYO will control this and all the big-name soil and compost-based pests through the growing season.
