I put crocks in my pots, because I always have. I don't think I could stop just like putting crosses on brussel sprouts before you cook them always done it lol

Just popped into our local garden centre looking to buy a plant for my new bed, could only really afford to get one when I saw a stand with perennial plants being sold for 99p so bought 8, poppies, verbena and some others. So theres me thinking I could only get one plant from the change in my purse and I end up with 8

damn things!

I have a terrible time with slugs and snails. I also use old milk cartons and juice bottles cut them in half and put copper tape around, also gone out at night with a torch and bucket. I`m trying something new at the moment called slug go its made up off sheeps wool made into pellets apariantly the slugs will not cross it so you put the pellets around the plant water it and the pellets swell forming a barrier. Its totally organic doesn't hurt the slugs and eventually rots back into the ground and feeds the plant. I hate using the blue pellets, I have lots of frogs and toads also dogs so its a defo no go.

I agree with the others, if the leaves are a lime/yellow colour then it needs some food.


Strawberry Plants

My strawberry bed was made up off runners from my original strawberry plants and they flowered and fruited (is that a word?) the same year. Just one question when its time to replace can I put strawberries back in same space?


Can anyone tell me what this insect is

Not sure what it is but by the length of its legs I think it would struggle to get in close to eat young shoots, looks more like it should be on water.


Clematis for Windy Area

Maybe choose one from the group 3 pruning range as they get pruned down to ground level each winter, so maybe miss most of the bad weather.

What is it?
