slugs and flour

Posted: 18/08/2012 at 19:54

Just a message for diggingdoris to say thankyou for such a bright idea to eradicate the slugs in my garden.  Just two tablespoons of flour in a bowl of water and hey presto, I have never seen so many slugs each morning.  My husband seems to think perhaps it is the yeast in the flour that they enjoy so much.  Anyway it has certainly saved my runner beans for the time being.  Thanks once again.

Rain water

My husband fitted a small piece of electrical cable tray into the end of the gutter end of the greenhouse leaving a piece about 4 inches sticking out, he then pushed the tray end into a piece of flexible hose. It must be a good fit, otherwise the tray will fall out. This means we can now put the hose into any kind of water retainer.  You can get this cable tray from any well known DIY store. You should with any luck get a piece the correct size. Its worth trying, we have had ours in place for years now. Hope this makes sense.

Who cares, they are lovely!! I bet you forgive them quickly for ruining your garden and digging all those holes. Imagine how many plants you would have if you put a plant in each hole.
