Slug nematodes... yay or nay?

Posted: 20/01/2014 at 08:39

Hello muvs Dashwood

I have used nematodes for slugs etc.  I think they do work.  They are expensive but are safe to use in the veg patch.  My chosen method is hand picking at night with a torch. 

 Nematodes can only be used in the warmer months though so you could use a few pellets strategically employed or start an early hand pick 

(more importantly, do you want that yorkie bar?    Quite partial to yorkie )

Morning everyone

Nice and bright few mins ago but now raining. 

Stacey, I prune my sieboldii hard back every year to about 50cm from the ground.  Works for me.  I think you will,find it flowers on old and new wood so I prune simply for flowers on new wood. 

Thanks everyone
