might be usefull for slugs

Posted: 25/04/2013 at 11:20

Have tried this method for the last two days. The first morning it just attracted 2 slugs but this morning was better. The guttering with slug pellets had 6 slugs under it and the one with no pellets had 5. They mostly were attatched to the guttering and so were very easy to remove, I just knocked them off with a stick and into a jar of salty water. Thanks Alan for this useful tip, hopefully my precious plants will survive a bit longer now

That sounds like a good idea. As slugs seem to like dark, moist, cool places it might even work without the slug pellets. I will try one with, and one without, and report back.



Have you put your potatoes in yet?

The average gardener

I think an 'average' gardener is someone who keeps their garden tidy, buys bedding plants every year from the supermarket, plants them out too early and wonders why they don't flourish. They like their garden to look nice but don't have enough interest to find out more. I don't think the 'average gardener' has a passion for gardening , which is a shame , they don't know what they're missing 

What's the weather like in your area?
