Slug nematodes... yay or nay?

Posted: 20/01/2014 at 10:21

I use nematodes in my potato bags as I fill them with ordinary garden soil which may contain slug eggs.  So far I have had no slug damage to the potatoes but they are expensive.

Flooded Harden

Mrs G, there are  a large number of plants that survive, Astilbe, hardy geraniums, alchemilla mollis, astrantia, acers, ferns, primroses to name but a few.  I suppose that whilst it seems soggy for a long while to us the roots are probably not saturated for long periods.  I think I dislike the summers when the ground is so hard you can't pull or dig weeds out.

Mrs G you have my commiserations, a large part of my garden is under 2 feet of water with our very own waterfall as the floods pour off the road over my raised bed.  It will be months before I can do any gardening in that area as we are on solid clay.  Not at all funny.

I don't see why it wouldn't grow in a pot as long as you remember to feed and water it during the spring/summer. 

Fleurisa, they sprout from the roots which can travel quite a distance and are extermly difficult to cut.

I've spent 20 years trying to get rid of moles from my garden and although successfully sometimes they always come back.  I now believe the only sure fire way is to MOVE

If they got wet during bright sun it may be scorching.  You need to be very careful with watering in sunlight
