Talkback: Slug invasion

Yes its annoying those vegetarians are mighty hungry and are out in force. What a problem and how to solve it. On one hand one feels guilty about killing the poor things ,by putting down pelts we are killing the wild life so we are told. I have found there is no one way as fast as you dispose of them there back and the birds cant keep up. When I find snail eggs I feed them to the fish and try allsorts of devices to stop the them until the end of the season and then then they go forth and multiply a lot more!

they like lime free soil and water when really dry and feed with liquid feed  they  don't like frost.

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

you need to  get the families and children to get donations  of flowers or cuttings from family and friends and get fathers to build flower beds and dig etc ,you can get a lot of free timber from skips .You cant keep on expecting firms and supermarkets to provide for your ideas and schemes,they are not bottomless pit of money and it will be more rewarding if everyone involved plays apart in making this garden.

What can I do with my spring flowering bulbs?

Posted: 01/05/2014 at 19:49

you either leave them  or dig them up and put in a pot or tub and cover with soil (to prevent drying out  and wet occasionally and leave in shed till autumn but its best to leave them if you can and divide if need be.

is it in lime free soil? they will not grow well if in the wrong soil.

pear tree leaves

it may be ants carrying the aphids to your leaves  causing the curl.All fruit trees should have an oily rag around the trunk of the tree to prevent this ,(veggie oil is what I use).
