In my Sucessive Garden the pests i have to deal with are Aphids,Cabbage worms,blub flies,carrot Weevils, earworms and thrips. Some of my plants such as Celery and peas dont have many pests but my beans will be prone to rotting. __________________________________________________________________________________________ In my beneficial part of my garden i have planted just flowers . I planted the flowers as a source for the bees i have set up around the garden to assist with the pollination. It also double ties with helping take care of pests because some of my floers are toxic to its preadators. My flowers: Lavatera Pansy Salpiglossis Snowdrop __________________________________________________________________________________________ In my Fruit garden i am planting: Cantalope- (Aphids/ Pickleworm)---pests Strawberries- {Slugs/Snails/Aphids) Rasberries- (Aphids) Pumpkin- (Beetles/Squash Bugs) For dealing with my pests in my fruit garden i will be using a mesh covering to help keep them out, as well as some Bacillus Thuringiensis to keep other threats from harming my plants __________________________________________________________________________________________ For my scientific Companion Veggie Gard. i used the Trapping Crop and the Biochemical Pest Trapping Crop: The crops i used for this method are Tomatoes & Chinese Cabbage. The Tomatoes are my distraction to stray the pests of the Chinese Cabbage because they do prefer Tomatoes over the Cabbage used. Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixiation: The crops used for this was my Beans(dry) and Peas. I chose these two companions because they give off enough nitrogen to help the other plant thrive and survive they are actually helping each other. __________________________________________________________________________________________

There are three succesive planting beds in this home garden, along with a fruit bed and a spice bed acting as a beneficial habitat for surrounding plants. The succesive beds are planted to support growth year round from left to right in order of time of year from spring to winter. For example spring cabbage, then large tomatoes, finishing with broccoli. The beneficial habitat garden is planted with cilantro, rosemary, rye, and mint. Cilantro produces pollen attracting ladybugs to help control aphids. Rosemary confuses cabbage butterflies and deters beetles and flies. Mint is grown to repel harmful insects like earworms that may attack the corn crop, and also to attract beneficial insects. Rye is mixed in to act as a beneficial nitrate trap crop. In the fruit garden there are strawberries, blueberries, rasberries and a dwarf peach tree. Common pests to these fruit producing plants are fruit flys in the strawberries, mites in the peaches,bud mites in the blueberries, and the dreaded Japanese beetle in the rasberries. A few methods to deal with these pests are trap cropping and planting herbs like mint which deter mites and beetles. Lastly there is a scientific companion garden which has winter peas to allow symbiotic nitrogen fixation in the soil, beds rotatd each year to maintain soil health.I also added garlic as a nasturtium to control aphids.

Pests in my successive garden are onion flies, leaf miners, and thrips which eat onion. Crickets, grasshoppers, moths, leaf miners, aphids, whiteflies, mites and caterpillars cause harm to the sweet potatoes. The insects that eat broccoli are aphids, moth and caterpillars. In the beneficial garden, the parsley, dill and lavender attract hoverflies, which prey on aphids. The lemon balm, parsley and thyme attract the tachinid flies, which are parasites of caterpillars and beetle and fly larvae. Trichogramma wasps lay eggs in eggs of moths and kills them, and the herbs that attract these insects are dill, lemon balm, parsley and thyme. The dill attract ladybugs which feed on aphids, whiteflies and mites. The strawberries attract fruit flies, slugs, snails, earwigs and aphids. Plant fennel to deter snails and slugs. The raspberries attract fruit worm beetles. Spray crops with the biopesticide Spinosad to control. Blueberries attract birds. Its controlled by putting a netting around the plant. Aphids feed on blueberries. Its controlled by planting beneficial plants that attract aphid predators. Dill and lavender are used to attract hoverflies. Cantaloupe attract whiteflies and aphids, which can be controlled by also using beneficial plants such as dill, lavender, and parsley. These herbs attract hoverflies and ladybugs which feed on aphids and whiteflies. They attract grass and leaf hoppers, which can be controlled by planting alfalfa, spearmint or marigold because they bring big eyed bugs as predators. Thyme, dill and marigold are all trap crops for beans and cucumbers. Marigold and dill attract hoverflies and ladybugs that prey on aphids and whiteflies. Marigolds also attract leaf hoppers which attracts away from the beans. Marigolds are biochemical pest suppressions because they produce thiopene, which deter harmful nematodes in the soil. The beans ae a symbiotic nitrogen fixation for the garden because they increase the nitrogen in soil.

Examples of common pests that are problems for my successive garden are cabbage aphids, or the carrot rust fly which destroys the roots of the carrot. In the beneficial garden, i used carrots to attract braconid wasps which help kill cabbage worms. Apple trees to attract honeybees which help pollinate other plants. Watermelon to attract wasps which help kill caterpillars and aphids. Raddish to attract lady beetles which help kill other aphids. In the fruit garden, some potential pests that are found in apple trees are apple maggots, and one way you can deal with these are through beneficial nematodes which help hunt these maggots in their early pupal stage. https://www.planetnatural.com/pest-problem. The strawberries often have slugs found among them, and ways you can deal with these are by using copper barriers, or beer baits. http://www.westernfarmpress.com/slug-control.

There are a lot of common pests that come along with a successive garden. Cabbageworms are commonly found in broccoli and cabbage. Different types of worms attack some of the plants as well, such as the earworm to corn and the hornworm to tomatoes. (https://www.planetnatural.com/tomato-gardening-guru/pests-disease/) Carrots suffer from nematodes and viruses. Beetles are also common like with cucumber beetles and with the radishes being attacked by flea beetles. Onions repel pests away from cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a few other crops as well. Basil improves the production and flavor of tomatoes. The smell of both onions and tomatoes help to repel mosquitoes. Borage helps to protect both tomatoes and cabbage by repelling the hornworm and cabbage moths. (https://www.thespruce.com/companion-planting-1402735) There are a lot of pests to be weary of with cantaloupe and melon plants, such as whiteflies, aphids, cucumber beetles, and squash bugs. Introducing natural enemies into the garden, such as the parasitic wasp and lady beetles, can help with this problem. Beetles are also a common problem like with cranberry plants and the Japanese bettle is also common with raspberries. These larger insects can be removed by thoroughly spaying the plants with water or physically removing the insects yourself. In the fourth garden, I planted beans and peas for the purpose of symbiotic nitrogen fixation. To protect my corn, edamame, and beans, I planted squash and rosemary as trapping crops for dear and insects.
