you could teach your dog to pee in one particular place..and thus not covering whole lawn in brown patches.
i have never known them to eat geraniums or dianthus.. they are not soft and juicy enough for them.
@ figrat.. that is a brill idea.. never ever heard of that.. i will have to go to sheepwash farm and get some.. i have 5 buts around the place.. so will have to get rather a lot.. neighbours will love me.
you see.. i think that is what makes a cottage garden.. or gravel with flat slabs in it.. i am at this point in my garden.. the paths.. what to have do not want something bright and bold..but soft and subtle.. i think Annie Glyn..that you have to sit and think what it is you do want.. what works for the space and how it is used.. i have been thinking of mine now for 3 months and have narrowed it down to two.. gravel with slabs stepping stones in or cobble looks stones.. still cant decide.
@inkadog.. i ahve thought about growing comfrey as monty says it is good idea.. you can dig it in or boil it to make a liquid feed... is that right.. and how do i get seeds for it.
i do not know either but i love them also.. my garden has them scattered all around.
i potted up som of my year old neapolitian cyclamen today.. ready for next year.. not sure how long before they flower..was told 2 years.. and i am going to ask if anyone knows if i can chelsea chop my nepetina (cat nip) plants or not as they are big and blousely and getting beaten by the wind.. i am going to do my sedums but nothing else is big enough for it.
@flowerchild.. that is such great news.. hope it all goes well.. will await your post on wednesday to see how it all went.
@figrat.. i know iam going to regret asking this......but.. why do you put sheep poo in your butt
i was told that it is only the brown slugs that eat your plants.. not the black ones..or is it other way round do these nematodes kill them all
@simon.. yeah the plastic sheetin is the best way.. where did you get the top soil from.. as i thought they only appeared under the lawn..
