April in Your Garden

Posted: 28/04/2012 at 11:08

Wintersong I have to admit that slugs are not normally a huge problem for me, it is so dry here, this april has been a bit of a shock. I have had success with my beer traps and I do like a slug run at night.

Geoff I do not expect them to get forecasting right on a 3 month basis but overnight seems a little simpler. I'm forever blowing bubbles.

How does that happen, you go to bed with a dry day forecast and a long list of jobs and you get up and they have changed the forecst to match the weather.

Wintersong your garden is very tidy, mine is currently looking a little windswept.

I did a slug run last night, got loads f them plus 5 cutworms, not sure my lupins will survive if it keeps raining.

Seeds as wedding favours

Love-in-the mist. Foxgloves, Violas, Sweet Williams.

This sounds like a lovely idea but in reality, gardeners want to grow specific plants and seeds are hard work for non gardeners.

backyardee I hope it works for you, my mum was in tears about the damage.

Inkadog sounds very painful.

Geraniums not flowering

I have some geraniums that I grow for their scented leaves and they have miniscule flowers. 

What did you feed them with? I use a tomato feed which mine seem to like.

Oh backyardee, my parents had this problem a few years ago and ended up fencing the entire garden, even though my dad is quite a good shot. Yvie is also plagued by rabbits so you will have her sympathies later.

I have been to the GC and bought a rescue lavander and gave in and bought a Queen Victoria lobelia, having failed to grow it from seed. The sun came out for an hour so I was able to pot them on but raining again now.
