Am I organic? No, not really as do use glyphosate & Provado sometimes. Getting more that way though, as find forget to do any repeat applications that may be due. Laziness too, anything for an easy (ha) life.
Do use copper tape & copper strips around pots & vunerable plants. Know that no point in buying fancy Campanulas at Tatton show- slug magnets in this garden. Have a couple of the very tall ones that do survive ok, but others forget it. Oh do have the rampant ground cover/scrambling one that always flowers & then we get torrential rain- this year as normal!
Never remember to check/redo the slug trap behind the hosta pots. Dont use the organic pellets that much- except this year, until I decided I didnt want any probs for 'hog'. Hope he/she keeps out of next doors' garden as it often looks as if got 'blue-spot measles'!
Ok, may try some more beans direct- once it stops raining, being a bit of a fair weather gardener. J.
