Bees Are Already Buzzing!!

Posted: 07/02/2012 at 14:53

We have had a bumblebee visiting our garden regularly for the last couple of weeks.

I believe there is programme about bumblebees on BBC2 at 8pm starting this Wednesday. It is the serious of three hour long programmes that were cancelled in the Autumn. I am really looking forward to it as I am planning to plant even more bee-friendly plants in my flower borders this year.

My Magnolia has a few flowers on it already and also one of my Pinks is in flower.

Slug invasion

I also use beer traps with great success and go out at least a couple of times in the evenings to catch and dispose of slugs and snails. Last year I also put whole cabbage leaves around my young plants and found that the slugs and snails prefered the cabbage leaves; I also found some of them hiding under the leaves in the mornings.

Many years ago during the early evening I was crawling up my garden path on my hands and knees looking under low growing plants to find slugs and snails when I was suddenly aware of someone watching me. My neighbour was watching me from his bedroom window with a really puzzled look on his face. I bet he thought I had gone completely mad!
