Well, it's essentially my main hellebore garden.....a spring garden corner  and low maintenance too 

Growers or Killers?

You sound like a very nice person Bekkie.  Bit eccentric maybe ?  In a likeable way

wanted to show my dierama guinevere.  anemone Wild Swan is there with heleniums, leucanthemums, actea, veronicastrums, agapanthus, etc...all to flower any day.  Runner bean poles just seen but these will soon be obscured by foliage

Bekkie, I took her to a GC couple years back and at the checkout a small slug crawled out from her just bought plant. She wanted to save it. The checkout girl simply squashed if ......I tried ro make out I was no part of this situation.
Bekkie, you sound nice, but get real......you cannot save a snail's life!

Remember a girlfriend once.....always saying goodbye, again and again and again. She would phone ro say goodbye, write to say goodbye and drop in to say goodbye. Always felt like singing Pete and Dud's goodbye song

Mike knows we like him here but he also knows he will stay. We all respect his difficulties at the moment and have empathy for him but nobody will beg anyone to stay.

Growers or Killers?

I help a friend with her garden.....it is huge. She won't kill anything.....an ant, slug, snail, etc. rabbits run amoc and when I try to catch one she screams I'm "scaring" it. I try to make an attractive garden for her buf it is frustratingly difficult.
However, I have to admit I find this refreshing......well, sometimes. It's naive and impractical though

We have to control pests however we can or we might as well give up growing the things we won't to. ,Berghill mentioned losing his heleniums and shastas...they are delicious, apparently, for any mollusc.......but for me that would be disastrous (garden wise anyway). Mine are tall, soon to be covered in flowers and slug free. I use pellets and, primarily, hand pick. More importantly, I want to eat my lettuce...ME....not the slugs.

We cant have it both ways......a full garden with uncomtrolled pests. So, I'm a grower and a killer

HELLO FORKERS!
