Slugs and copper

Just one strand out of the centre of the 3 core grey flat cable. He stapled this to the top of the wood. It does need cleaning every year, my husband used a cloth with brown sauce ( yes I did say brown sauce) and rubbed it until it was shiney. Good luck.

July in the garden!!

Slugs and copper

My husband has put stripped back household copper wire around my raised bed and it works a treat, those slugs haven'nt eaten my beans. He picked it up from a car boot sale along with some tomorite. It is surprising what you can get for the garden at a car boot sale.

Rain and wind again again in Bournemouth not nice at all. Heard on the radio this morning that there is no sign of prolonged sunshine for at least the next two weeks. Where has our summer gone?

It has been really hot and sunny here in Bournemouth today. It is now very cloudy and the wind has picked up quite a lot, it really looks like it is going rain. Still very warm though. 

Talkback: Seed germination

Posted: 28/06/2012 at 18:21
I have had the same problem with Celeriac. Three times I've sown these and at last I've got one that is growing well, yes only one. They just haven't germinated well at all. My carrots have been the same, they are now coming up in my veg patch so here's hoping.
