Hiya folks.....ecky thump! All deep stuff today.....and on top of the lions thrashing Australia. Loved in Aussie as a kid but always want to beat them. Did I say we won? Ha ha
One of my favourite grassss from August onwards is pennisetum VILLOSUM. This is a billowing type grass with huge caterpillar-like whitish flowers and is superb. Maybe tender many places ..
Im not anti-hard lamdscaping....as I said I've done plenty of it....I just prefer the softer side of gardenImg. l liked Love your garden with Titchmarsh this week and without hard landscaping it would not have worked. I guess I do grow a large number of plants but I always allow room for full development of each one
Keen which salvia is it? I grow several varieties..at least a dozen tender ones.
I venture out late at night too with torch and salt solution. After 11 pm for me is when I catch the blighters. Been doing it for few weeks now and I see fewer and fewer each time and still, no damage to my hostas etc. it's best and safest way to deal with slugs n snails.
