Good Bugs in Your Garden! (get free ladybugs)

Just went to Armstrong yesterday for some new seeds and discovered it's a big weekend for us there!

About this Saturday's meetup: 

Many insects are excellent garden helpers. Learn which plants are best for attracting these beneficial insects as well as what they can do to help your garden flourish. Includes interactive activities for kids.

They told me they're giving free ladybugs to attendees. I've bought their ladybugs several times to clean up my aphids.

Help Us Get More Members!

Tell them you found their class through this meetup (give them the name)--hopefully they'll get interested enough to start telling people about our meetup and we'll get more members!

      I attended both classes but didn't know who was in the meetup. Great class with lots of very useful information on insects. I released my ladybugs last night and the birds were taking off with them this morning! I know I looked ridiculous chasing the birds away and trying to herd the ladybugs back to my aphid infested kale. I'll try again to find everyone at the plant sale in Vista.

      Hi Dawn, My fault..I was late arriving on Sat and couldn't make Sunday. I'm going to start asking everyone to look for me since there's only one of me and many of you! Maybe we can plan a carpool for Vista...

    I liked the tips about what flowers to plant to attract beneficial. And I wrote down some good notes. Will try corn starch and cedar oil for the ant problem in my garden.

    I heard about this through Armstrong's email and was planning on going after my morning hike. Sorry I won't be there to meet the people in this group. I'll catch you at another time.
