Posted: 04/08/2017 at 07:41

And they've been watered regularly?

Another vote here for nematodes ... a lot less slug damage on my Shady Bank.  


But do keep the solution away from ponds ... the nematodes also kill pond snails

Good morning all 


Dacha ... I hope your wife's back eases soon. It reminds me that five years ago to the day I did exactly the same thing ... Just before my daughter Wonky's wedding ... the mother of the bride was doped up on cocodamol and champagne  If you're looking in Wonky ... Happy Anniversary!!!

OK, no euphorbias there ............   


Maybe, as you're new to gardening, your skin's just a bit more susceptible to some of the plants that most of us have either become inured to or have learned to avoid.    Some people have a real sensitivity to tomato foliage where as the rest of us just feel a mild tingling after fossicking around amongst the leaves.  


Wear long sleeves when gardening, and if you get sap on your skin or scratches, then shower and keep your skin covered or stay out of the sun until we find out what the triggers are .....


Good luck and let us know how it goes ........... 


ID, please!

There are some variegated plants I like ... but  they are few and far between.  Ilex aquifolium Argentea Marginata is, in my opinion, the most gorgeous holly there is 


and where would we be without all those luscious variegated hostas
