What does the insectarium look like 6 months after planting?

What have we learnt from the Spring/Summer Integrated Pest Management monitoring?

In September 2016 we ran some workshops to provide the research. Six months after the first trial site was planted, we are holding a farm walk to check its progress:

  • What plants are growing well?
  • Which plants have flowered?
  • Matching flower times with the presence of beneficial insects
  • What have we observed with the insect monitoring?
  • What have we learnt?
