Problem with Heuchera plant

Posted: 11/10/2017 at 23:45

As well as the usual basket type plants, fuchsia, Begonia etc, they’ve had aquilegia, heuchera and lupins. 

They are the one creature apart from slugs of course that I just cannot touch with bare hands, they are so clean and perfect, I pick them out with tweasers and feed to the birds.

Diificult  to see, could be white fly, have they got wings, do they fly up when you disturb them. they don’t die easily!

Now  is the time to apply nematodes if you want to, up to mid November.  You can also do them in Spring.  

They work out a bit expensive to put on the garden, depending on how big your garden is I suppose.

I only used them in pots and tubs.

Its the slug ones that you apply in the Spring/early summer.

What you must remember though that if the little darlings hurt themselves they will sue youπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Berberis is ideal, I have that planted right round my oil tank. 

The police recommended it, they said at least they could get some dna from itπŸ˜€

Opinion about watering assistance

It’s already been done with drinking mugs so I suppose someone would buy the pots, lots of people just love to spend money on gimmicky items.

I prefer the Moors to the sea, just about five mile drive to open moorland from here. 

I do love to see a very rough coast line though, places people don’t use as tourist resorts. Definitely don’t like holiday resort beaches. 

This is another view from that cottage, not the best part of Hartland, the rock structure at the quay is absolutely stunning.
