Sorry to have been absent for so long and I am really genuinely touched and more than a little surprised ,by those who have mentioned me. I am totally fine , but as I work for Waitrose now, delivering customer shopping, here in Devon it's now full of holidaymakers, and , when I'm not at work, I'm desperately trying to keep up with my own garden.
My hostas have suffered a bit with slugs/ snails this year too. I blame it on the mild winter not killing enough of them off.After an otter ate all the fish in our pond, I filled it with frog spawn in the spring, so I'm hoping they'll be munching on slugs soon.
p.s. went back to the nursery in Surrey I used to deal with and came away with 11 new ( to me ) varieties.
Warmest regards to you all.
