Perhaps a neighbour might like them.

Lesley, I don't really know my neighbours well (although certainly I can assure you that one is not at all green fingered). Perhaps I could put them on the front drive with a "free to good home" sign. There's still a bush out there from when I went on the local "sales forum" offering a few plants to anyone who wanted to collect them - its been months but I just haven't gotten round to moving it!

Oh they're definite slug masters that's for sure! Maybe I should sacrifice them and put them at the edge of the garden as traps to stop the slugs venturing towards my tomatoes.

Not quite companion planting...

Non of them are exactly little either else I'd be trying to put them in the post to the flood victims fund but I think between them they'd be a car load on their own!

Anyone in the South Yorkshire (S25) area want these plants? No idea what they are (aside from slug magnets) and they don't fit into our plants.

 (Not sure how we'll manage it but I want to rescue the pot from this one)

 (A close up of the second one - I think! - In case it helps anyone identify it.)

Morning all! 

Cut the wildlife area (aka overgrown) where the chickens are going - couldn't move for frogs! Little devils all over the place trying to trip me up! Wish they'd spread into the garden and make a dent on the slugs.

Thanks for the forum link Dove - just waiting for my account to be approved.

Our fish are eating the oxygenating plants like I never feed them. Must be tastier than it looks!

Does anyone here know a good chicken type forum? My continuing education is starting to run dry. I'm currently thinking of one Milliefleur Pekin, one Lavender Pekin, and two Gold Partridge Pekins (the farm we'd be getting them from said they'd be fine mixed up together) but I'd like to start digging into them a little more in case one has terrorist type quirks! (I've been told the Lavenders like cuddles which is not something I thought I'd hear about hens!)

Dove - you can never have enough rosemary! I need to take cuttings off mine (is it August you do it?) To start boosting my stock as I get so nervous about taking off too much from my little pot by the kitchen door.

(As you can tell I'm really very motivated at my desk today!!)

All this talk of ladies and their shoes - I live in steel capped boots and trainers! In fact my OH has more shoes than me but that's because he has four pairs of trainers in comparison to my mere three.

Impatiently waiting for lunch time and wishing I'd brought more food with me today. Miss swallowed one of my peppermint oil tablets and every time I breathe in its like I'm inhaling ice! Hoping to drown it with food as drowning it in drink makes things worse.

Hope the weather is nice this weekend - will be mostly home alone and have big plans with a pot of paint!
