I am afraid to say.. However so many, shall we call them Sunday gardeners. Similar to Sunday drivers. They garden by sight. OOOh I've got this that and the other in my garden. Mankind is the biggest destroyer on the planet, and so blind at times, not realising that we can be destroying ourselves and this beautiful home called earth. Do in part to the inbalances bought about by our ill conceived ideas of balancing the books so to speak. Years ago, many of our native birds took care of the snail problem. Birds such as thrushes. The slugs always proved to be gigh on the menue of Mr Spikey. Aka the hedgehog. Todays chemicals were not needed. Now that an imbalance has developed, chemicals tend to be order of the day. PLEASE. If you find yourself resorting to their use. Then thoroughly read and follow the instructions. Most chemicals if applied early morning or last thing at night, will in most cases be absorbed into the plant system. Many on the otherhand are made up with added constiuents, that caus the chemical to neutalise upon contact with the soil. The odd ones out. I think it was Edd, who informs us that he contacted the company whose product has raised this thread Thanks Edd. This is where forums such as this one can truly come into their own. Please friends. Don't hesitate to post athread about some new idea or whatever that has come to your notice.
Might I say with the greatest of humbleness. Thank you so much, for the kind comments, about my posts to this forum. Mike has been at it for ages, but I am still learning.
Enjoy your gardening.
