Talkback: Slug-proof plants

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:27
I've never seen any slug damage on my bergenias and they make a lovely early show in the spring. I've had snail damage on the leaves of tulips but all other bulbs. especially alliums seem to be immune. To get a sure-fire spectacular display of flowers why not try small shrubs eg. hebes. just grow them large enough to be inedible to a snail first in a pot.

Talkback: Plants for bees

This year, having grown camassias for the first time , I find the bees love them. The bees need all the help we can give them at the present time, not only because of the mysterious decimation they are going through, but also because more and more gardeners are opting to grow their own fruit and veg. so their(the bees') services are more in demand!
