Bayer gives advice on You Tube

Gardeners can access practical advice from Bayer Garden via its three new videos that have gone live on the garden care company's You Tube TV channel, Bayer Garden UK.

The first video shows how to tackle garden pests like aphids, scale insects, leaf hoppers and sawfly using Provado Ultimate Bug Killer Ready to Use and Concentrate. 

The second highlights the correct way to use Slug & Snail Killer and Slug Bait so there’s no overdosing and no consequent risk to hedgehogs and birds. 

The third explains the company’s simple soluble sachets, used in its Path Weedkiller, Ground Clear and Super Strength Glyphosate concentrated weedkillers, showing how they avoid the need to handle the chemical or deal with the waste packaging. 

"People can be nervous of using chemicals in the garden," said Bayer Garden product manager Laura Varey.

"The key to success, getting the results you want without any unintended consequences, is to use the products according to the instructions. 

"These videos show the right way to use the products and so will be useful for lots of gardeners."
