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 .........
Going to try to stay awake for the whole of Stargazing Live .......... it's wonderful ..............
I filled my raised veg beds with two thirds screened topsoil and one third well rotted manure.

I absolutely loved that series.
Hefty - that's soooooooooooo lovely !!!
Fairy, your alpina is well ahead of mine down here - looking lovely. I like Silver Chimes too
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.
Done ... thanks
