Description: Neem is an evergreen tree which can reach a height of 15-20 metres, it is native to Iran, Pakistan and the Indian Sub-continent, and it can also be found growing in Malaysia, Australia and West Africa. The compound leaves are alternate and approximately 20-4-cm in length. The individual leaflets are 3-8cm in length with a short stem, lanceolate with serrated edges, light green in colour with pale yellow midrib. The 5-petaled flowers are white and fragrant and 8-11mm in diameter, they form drooping panicles of flowers approx. 25-30cm in length.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that you can make a rather effective and organic pest control spray for the garden using neem oil? Neem oil is antiviral, antifungal and antimicrobial making it a perfect natural chemical to use in the garden to help control common pests like whitefly, aphids, scale bugs, mealy bugs, spider mites, and thrips. The natural antifungal properties also mean that neem can help control powdery mildew on garden plants, and also black spot and rust which often effect roses. To make your own spray add 1 teaspoon of neem oil to 1 litre of warm water and add ¼ teaspoon of horticultural liquid soap or washing up liquid and mix well. Spray onto plants as you would other garden spares, be sure to target the under-side of the leaves for pests like scale bugs.Note that neem oil will solidify if the temperature of the oil drops below 13°C. It can be ‘melted’ again by placing the bottle in some warm water until a liquid state is reached once again.
