The red gladioli doesn't have a name Chicky as they were bought from Wilkinson as purple ones.   Some were purple but the rest turned out red which was a nice surprise.

Lovely Caral and impressed that your 7 year old appreciates it too and he even bought a plant.  Does he help you in your garden too.

He was probably snoozing as you say Grandma and when he wakes up this evening he will be rummaging around in your garden for some tasty slugs.

Wisley Outing - sunday 7th Sept

Posted: Yesterday at 14:36

Wisley was on GQT this week and they mentioned the cut silver birch branches that they put in the ground as a sculpture.  If you guys spot this when you visit could you take a photo?  That is, if you have time, as there will be so much to see there.  Thanks ever so.

The way to test if they are ready is to peel back the top just a little and slit one of the kernels with your finger nail -if the liquid which comes out is milky they are ready but if the liquid is clear leave another day or two then test again. 

Snails - the French have the right idea

I have been astonished that the slugs have even been up my sunflowers and eaten the petals (left a slimy trail behind so I know it's them).

The title of this post should add '"and why don't the French eat slugs too".

I admire you all for growing such fabulous dahlias and I don't know which to choose as best as they are all really wonderful.  I have no hope of growing them as I have the national collection of slugs in my garden.
