Got Beechgrove to look forward to later

Hope bite soon eases SP - nasty stuff

Sounds like busy weekends all round .... I did more weeding.  But it is all looking v summery, so i didn't mind being in amongst it.  OH mowed paths through our meadow (that sounds grand, it is a field next door) - we have finally got yellow rattle coming up all over the place, so hoping i will soon have some luck with the wildflower plugs i am growing.  Meadows are the hardest work of anything in this garden - 7 years on, and we are only making glacial progress.

Slug pellets

I've been using the slug gone/sheeps wool pellets - they seem to work on hostas and clematis - but they don't go very far

Need help identifying a few plants

Hi Sara - 2 looks like a mahonia and 3 are hellebore leaves - both work keeping, although you will have to wait til next winter/early spring to see them in their full glory

Not sure what 1 is, but looks cultivated (ie not a weed) so worth keeping for a year to see what it does to earn its keep.

Good luck with your new garden .....exciting times
