One of the questions most frequently asked in the organic garden is what to do about pests.
The current drought seems to have caused a food shortage for wildlife so everything is descending on the vegetable garden.

The birds are even eating my hot chillies, An excellent organic product on the market is Bioneem, derived from the neem tree. It works for grasshoppers, aphids, caterpillars, including cabbage caterpillar that may be a problem on all the brassicas. It has anti-feedant properties and interferes with the life cycle of some insects. Be aware that it should only be used as directed on the product label as very large concentrations can be toxic to fish. Cutworms can be foiled by planting seedlings with a matchstick adjacent to the stem to prevent the worm from being able to bite through it. The only effective deterrent against birds is a net covering. If you are unable to enclose a whole area with netting, movable cloches (mini greenhouses)can be very simply made and placed over plants at their most vulnerable time. They also improve the survival rate of newly transplanted seedlings enormously.
Interestingly enough, rubber snakes seem to be fairly effective against monkeys, but do not worry the birds at all. June is not the most favorable month for sowing but lettuces, radishes and brassicas can still be planted. Lettuce and radishes make good companions but never plant lettuces near broccoli as they really do not like each other.
Water wise gardening
Shady area in the water wise garden can sometimes cause a conundrum as they are usually associated with water loving ferns and other thirsty plants. The soil under trees can often be very dry as the tree roots suck up all available moisture. There are a number of succulents that do well in the shade. Crassula freyi has lovely purple leaves and dainty pink flowers in spring and Crassula ovate does well in both sun and shade. Aeonium variegatum forms a small rounded shrub with white and green variegated leaves. The dwarf sanseverias (mother in laws tongues) have unusual leaf patterns which add permanent interest to the shade garden.
