I got slugged

Posted: 12/05/2016 at 18:43

shutting the door doesn't keep them out. I use pellets on benches, they hide all over the place. Tonight the greenhouse is getting slug pubs.

The cutting garden 2016

Posted: 12/05/2016 at 18:30

Well I finished planting the sweet peas, tied to canes and watered in. I found a tray of clary salvia plugs has been decimated by wood pigeons, so I put them back in the polytunnel to bulk up again.

The alliums are starting to open so I cut a few for a vase along with some euphorbia and bluebells.

I dont have any.

Tesco think I have a dog because of the amount of food I buy for foxes and hedgehogs.

I also buy a lot of bird food including duck food.

Then of course there are the squirrels.

At least I don't have any vets bills.

I have re sown all my runner beans with a different type. The first lot swelled up and then went mouldy instead of germinating. The sweet corn and climbing french beans sown at the same time are up.

I have emailed the supplier to complain.

With a bit of hardening off, they could all go out now. As they will be growing fast now, If you don't want to put them in their permanent positions yet, I would put them into 5 or 6 inch pots.

Eleven flowers Chicky, wow, that better than they ever did for me. I don't think peonys much like sandy soil, they much prefer next doors clay.
