Slugs ,slugs slugs it is always slugs--or snails- especially in wet conditions-use pellets or whatever means to deter them-it is a war out there

how to cultivate moss where there is grass

Posted: 13/06/2012 at 14:22

If you want to grow moss and wildflowers you are going to have to reverse what most gardeners want and that is create poor soil-it has been known for some to remove top soil to achieve these conditions.

It is a lot of work but I know some posters on here have created a wildflower patch-hopefully one will pick this up and relate their experiences.

Kate-you made it back from the jungle- were there any wild animals out there?

The mimulus are mixed colours-it was like a jumble sale with all the old biddys fighting over the bargains

Am off soon to cut the oldies grass

Do you have a Wilkinson's near you-got a carton for a £1 last week

Biennials to be precise-usually things like wallflowers, foxgloves, sweet williams you sow now and they flower in around 12 months-you do not have too keep them in the greenhouse in fact it is best they are grown outside- then if you have nice sturdy plants they can be planted out in the autumn

Actually I went to Homebase first they had loads of reduced plants some of the tomatoes were about a foot high all leggy for 50p -not really worth much-the trouble is they have bought these plants in and the weather has put a damper on it-I have now got 22/24 mimulus plants -not sure they are all going to make -they are on life support and the next 48 hours will be crucial

I have been to B&Q again-this time 24 rather tatty mimulus plants for 90p should be able to save 75%-I feel I am doing a good think by saving souls

It is a star-ship come to whisk you off to a distant galaxy where they live on chocolate bars.

I do not have sun

Yesterday Lottie the broody chicken came down on her own for a while -today she is in a separate pen in the garden
