I review these products during tasks I personally carry out within my garden on a regular basis. Using the right product or tool for the job makes the difference of doing it the easy way or the hard way, so I really value a product which can make my life easier.

I am hoping that garden related companies will send me ‘products’ to test and evaluate. However I must stress that I will not be anything but fair and make no promises to these companies other than to tell the truth. Many of the products here are what I have already purchased for my own gardening use and are happy with.
You may ask, what are your qualifications? Well Judy and I opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for
10 years. We now open to support a specific charity.
We had our 18th Open Garden in 2019.
We won Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel’, have appeared on the ‘Garden Guru’s and ‘Gardening Australia’ twice and on various other television shows. We have given over 200 presentations to garden clubs on Sub tropical gardening and open our garden for bus tours. What is more important is that we have learnt from our gardening mistakes.

Fly Catcher

The dammed fly's are such a pest at the moment.
I have tried spraying from an aerosol can but that does little good, they keep coming back.
I just want to sit on my back patio and relax and have lunch without sharing it with dirty flies.
I went to our local hardware store today (Bunnings) and bought two twin packs of 'The Buzz' insect control fly catcher.

They cost $12 a pack so nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I opened the pack and sachets containing the bait and hung them up in the outside patio area.
On the pack it say's the activation of the bait will take 24 hours.

Well, within an hour we had already trapped over 30 fly's and after one full day there were scores of dead flys.

The baits last for about two weeks so you obviously have to go out and repurchase, but the thing works and I am happy.
It is obviously a great product which I am more than happy to recommend.
