Just googled Strulch. Apparently it repels slugs.  There's a stockist not far from here. Dont know if t hey deliver.  I've been mulching with Notcutt's soil conditioner today. Sort of composted bark and chippings. Seems very good quality.

AuntyRach - that sounds a brilliant lunch - we never got anything that good at conferences ... usually the usual sandwich/quiche/roll medley with an occasion cold sausage or wedge of scotch egg.  Once we did get a lunch where every single ingredient was  coated in either batter or breadcrumbs and deepfried 

right, concentrating on Stargazing again .........

I remember watching Geoffrey Smith's 'World of Flowers' with great enjoyment. Would love to watch it again now I've learned more, but it doesn't seem to be available,though you can get the book.

See original post

While we've been outside mulching and digging, it's been lovely watching our bluetits busily popping in and out of the nest box and listening to the robin singing from the ash tree while the bees were buzzing in the pulmonarias.  A really lovely day.
