Slup pellets

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?

soil treated by ant powder

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.

Unknown shrub

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.

Kniphofia question

They do make clumps with more than one stem, if they like your garden.

Can anyone identify these plants please?

What does cvs mean?

Posted: 15/05/2016 at 16:01

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.

L. ovalifolium is a deciduous species of Privet. If you want an evergreen one you should plant L. japonicum.

This is appalling. I cannot see me ever using this site again. Will say goodbye to all my friends on here.
