Slugs and lupins

The only way friendly is to use nematodes, they really do work, but are expensive. Although if you buy your plants from a garden centre then nematodes are well worth the money.

I have these hogweeds sometimes, they are so deep rooted I have now resorted to glyphosate, if you break the taproot they will grow again, only stronger.

I think it was this that I was strimming once in our churchyard, the next day I was a mass of sore itchy bumps on my arms and legs. Mind you, it was hot and I was strimming it in a dress!!.

Thank you for your comments, they are nice, I have to admit that after literally drowning them in strong garlic water, it made no difference,  i do use slug pellets under them.

The blue one has leaves bigger than my outstretched hand.

Whatever you write, I still have a blank page on the tablet. I have to use laptop to see profiles. I cant do PM's'either.

In fact, the whole tablet is a pain in the wotsit, because I cant even see what I am typing in the posting box.

To everything there is a purpose, what is the purpose of slugs and snails.

I go around with a stanley knife and cut then up, at least that way they get dug back into the soil and enrich the ground. They then have a purpose.

I grow mine from seeds too. Simple and a lot, lot cheaper. I once read that someone grows them and treats them as anuals. I dont think mine will be ready for picking any decent amounts this year though, they seem to be taking ages to grow, watched pot and all that!

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

My grand mother, born around 1880, had a tattoo and pierced ears, my son and his mate went to Docs in  Union street  Plymouth to get a tattoo each, mate came back with something about an inch high, son came back with one earing! Cowards.

 I once went out with someone who had a large Cornish flag tatooed on his back. Cant say I like them though.
