Organic Pest & Weed Control

Brought to you by The Diggers Club

Your workshop

Organic gardening implements many different methods to achieve a healthy garden without the use of synthetic chemical insecticides, herbicides, and fertilisers.

 In this workshop, our head gardener, Julian, will investigate the uninvited species that appear in your garden and how to handle them. He will cover topics such as integrated pest management, organic pest and weed control, increasing plant diversity, improving plant and soil health to reduce susceptibility to pest or disease attack and the methods to give your garden a chance to fight the invaders naturally.

Your Presenter

Presented by Julian Blackhirst. Julian is the Head Gardener at St Erth, where he is curator of the espalier orchard, the food forest, and the bulb meadows, and he is a highly experienced market gardener and passionate fork to fork foodie!

The Location

Featuring over 4 acres of food, cottage and bush gardens each season provides different delights and inspiration to both experienced and aspiring gardeners. The gardens are filled with plants which thrive in central Victoria’s cold winters and hot dry summers. A huge range of daffodils, hellebores and other flowering bulbs bring the garden to life in spring.

Visitors can admire the colour and beauty of our perennial flower borders throughout summer and autumn with hardy, long flowering perennials creating an amazing cottage garden display amongst our Australian bush setting.

The Garden has been certified organic since 2008 and Digger’s range of perennials, bulbs and heirloom vegetables are grown at St Erth using the best organic methods. Seasonal produce from our kitchen gardens is served at St Erth café throughout the year.
