Slug..... Or is it ?

Posted: 06/03/2015 at 18:35


But Neet is an experienced gardener of 40 years and he says he's never seen anything like it, and he says it doesn't have the texture of a slug

Slug..... Or is it ?

Never seen anything like that before - and I have seen a lot of things! 

Whereabouts are you Neet?

Here in Norfolk we're very keen on keeping an eye on slugs - I suggest you should contact the Slugwatch team at the John Innes Centre - contact link at the bottom right of this

and do keep us informed - I'm intrigued

Hostafan   That's brilliant news - now for that physio!!!  I had physio then had to go to the 'knee gym' where several people with 'knees' did various activities designed to strengthen muscles, improve balance etc.  I remember lots of stair-climbing and wobble-board stuff   Hope your lovely OH is going to get a lie-in over the weekend

Hope everyone else with aches, strains and pains have got their feet up and are well enough for a weekend playing outside

Does anyone know when...

Or.. you could watch it on the iPlayer.    Fabulous thing that.

I always record it anyway, but I like to watch it between 8 and 9 on a Friday - I'm a creature of habit

Hi Neet

Any photographs?  What colour are these creatures?

toad spawn

Fantastic!    We've seen young toads in this garden but no adults so are not expecting spawn this year - we have got frogs in the garden but before we made our pond last year they spawned in next door's pond, so I don't know whether they'll use our pond this year - I live in hope

vermiculite or perlite

I use whichever I can get

When we moved to this garden it was full of ivy

 We cut it all back and then dug the roots out - they don't really go very deep  - it took most of the summer and filled three skips - but we have got rid of it and put up new fences - we just get the occasional bit creeping through from next door.

Good luck
