Mice adore them. We lost all ours to rodents a few years back. They also need to be very dry over winter or they rot.
They also get quite large. I have just had to take a chain saw to one which was over hanging the fence. the branch was over 3 inches in diameter. You can cut them right down to the ground and they regrow quite quickly.
Are the slug pellets which are so poisonous to cats and dogs also poisonous to other creatures? I know that they can kill hedgehogs, but what about rabbits, squirrels or badgers?
Hope so, since we have used it extensively over the last 20 years in the polytunnel. And since it is 99 percent talcum powder I doubt very much that it is going to be harmful to humans. Any poison in it is going to be quickly diluted when it rains.
That's the one. Now I even remember where I got it from in the first place. It was part of the collection at Dunham Massey, I think.
Hope someone can put a name to this shrubby Lonicera, as we have it as part of our hedge. It is a real seed weed too as the birds love the red berries and spread it all over the garden.
They do make clumps with more than one stem, if they like your garden.
Picture not showing!
cvs =cultivars. Plants which differ in some way from the species, or are hybrids. So Penstemon King George is a cultivar.
Don't forget that many of these are hybrids and do not always come true from seed. Having said that you may get something worth having from the seed sowing.
