Rockery Vs Slugs??

Posted: 05/05/2015 at 12:21

Well, we have a fair number of rockeries (horrible word!) and there are no more molluscs on them than on the rest of the garden. We have a water meter in a brick lined 'well'. type thing. It is stuffed full of snails and I cannot say that they have ever invaded the Alpine growing area next to it.

By all means incorporate a pond in your plans. Frogs, toads and newts all eat molluscs. Provided you give them plenty of cover, the cats will not be a problem to your amphibians. At least the 5 cats in this garden do not bother them.

ID please

Well, that is definitely a Tulip.

How much stone to remove.

Another use for the smaller stones.


 I did not make this path though, it is probably Victorian or even earlier, but I have done similar things elsewhere.

The bulb looks awfully like a Muscari. There are white ones like that.

Certainly not, and not being evasive. I honestly cannot remember what they were or whether or not they survived.

At that sort of value I would guess they were Hepaticas, in which case they probably died.

You mean rocks like these?

Runnybeak. Not sure now what the seedlings were. Such a long time ago. The bee larva hatched and flew away in the spring. I do know that much.

Comes in various forms. V. opulus sterilis is the one which has the biggest flowers and is generally the one sold as the Snowball Tree. Then there is the standard one which has red berries and V.o. xanthocarpa which has yellow berries. We have all three.

When did you take the picture?

If it is flowering now, then it is awfully early for a Hydrangea. In that case I would say it was a Viburnum.
