my hostas have been eaten.
The snails are just having a party. i have taken to collecting them in a bucket of salty water as the pellets are not not lasting long enough to have any real effect. I have collected what seems like 100s of the little bugg@rs
My holly hocks are rusting away to nothing, fungicide is not having any effect as it keeps getting washed off in the rain.
Beans and courgettes have all been eaten, tomatoes only just begining to form fruit. Courgettes only just flowering, pumpkins sulking, every single of the 100 + sunflowers sown have either been eaten or didn't germinate.
I normally have a garden party the last weekend of July( when the garden is at its absolute best ) , bunting, sandwiches, scones etc, always serve a home grown tom salald and a bean salad, will have almost nothing home grown to feed people this year and for the garden it looks dismal
