Hi paddy5, if you have a little look around at suggestions, there are all sorts, citrus peel, lion dung and i read the other day, somebody suggesting teabags just under the soil sprayed with muscle spray(deep heat and the like i guess) my worry with that tho, is that i grow veg and am a little worried about the muscle rub/spray would leech into my crops and impair taste and flavour

Hi lorea, at the mo, i don't seem to have any 'unwanted' presents!! (so far) feel i may have tempted fate a little there tho! As for the slugs, don't seem to have that much trouble so far, but, again, i have a  feeling that fate may feel a little to tempted now

I've put some down, as a deterrent for cats that like to use my facilities, have heard conflicting things tho, they're more used for slug repellant?, can anyone shed any light please, thanks

Hi people, was wondering /hoping, somebody may have some useful tips for taking up some turf by hand, without a turf cutter. We moved into our house in september last year, i've made room for veg, but the grassed area is all over the place with lumps and bumps and is patchy, i've been given the use of a lovely old ladys garden as well to grow veg, but the area she has given me to use is lawn, which looks a nice quality, i'd like to take that up and re-lay it in my garden. I don't want to hire a turf cutter as we're on a budget, any tips would be greatly appreciated
