creating a soil bed for bushes

I would add some well rotted farmyard manure and mix it in well. The earthworms will find their own way there. 


Make sure you fork over the soil at the bottom of the "trench" to make sure it doesn't form a hard "pan" which would cause drainage problems.

Organic eradication of slugs and snails in beds!

Lots of regulars on here have found that they work well if you follow the directions.


I've not used them, but this garden has very gritty soil and doesn't seem to get too much slug damage (famous last words)

Vanishing slug pellets.

I agree - very worrying.  The main ingredient of metaldehyde pellets is cereal and yeast which will make it attractive to birds and animals.  


The blue colour is supposed to make them unattractive to birds and animals, but jackdaws are well known for being attracted to bright things so .............
