Slug resistant hostas

Posted: 27/01/2016 at 06:44

I've not grown Hosta Bressingham Blue, but I do have  H. Hadspens Blue which the slugs seem to leave fairly well alone. 

Some hostas have tougher more 'corrugated' leaves and these are the ones that they seem to ignore.  They also seems to leave H. Sum and Substance alone fairly well too.

I'm sure Hostafan and others who grow more hostas than I do will be along soon and have more to say.

Compost again

Ash from firewood logs is great.

Ash from reclaimed timber which has been painted or treated in some way is not so good - like coal ash it can contaminate the soil.

Hello folks - I'm back

Would you believe it, at Ma's Lovely Home they have Day-time and Night-time ... apparently it takes some getting used to but it's nice to have a change ... makes things more interesting. 

I mentioned that I'd be seeing Wonky later this week.  "Oh, do you know her?  That's nice"

Thanks for helping Wonky sort out her TOGs - apparently she phoned here just after I'd set out for Ma's visit.  Can't have her and Lovely Hub 'boiling in the bag'

((Hugs)) for every poorly person and those convalescing - get well soon EVERYONE!!!

HELLO FORKERS!
