Hello garden angel

There was a fantastic thread by a fantastic guy about some fantastic jokes.  

Slug pellets

I think,the effect is equally felt by slugs and snails.  

I read, somewhere, that less than 10% are actually killed by pellets.

Good luck Clarington.  Did you research the company for info about them?  Maybe you could see a reason there for wanting to join them?

Rosemummy, well we live and learn.

Violas?  I cut back in mid summer....they will reflower,quite quickly.  However, I often split them and pot up.  

The clematis and rose were meant for wildlife or wild garden.  No way would I do any of that or use any of those plants.  Surprised he didn't plant dandelions too. Not for me.

However, Beechgrove is an excellent programme with excellent presenters.   Enjoyable half hour

Hello Ryan.  Nice to hear from ??ou again 

Well. You have no choice but to out them outside now.  

A clean cut back is important and hopefully they will grow....there's still time for that.  I think your site is fine......full sun will be too much for them right now.  I would be inclined to cover those with no shoots with fleece.......helps ward off any stray slugs if nothing else.

Welcome fraximus.  Lots of new members lately 

Dove's cake is making me drool.....my iPad is quite messy.....could post a selfie but not a good sight.  

Well, lovely day again albeit a little windy. Lawns cut, veg patch weeded, heleniums staked, another dahlia planted and geum totally Tangerines have been cut back to encourage more flowering.  Lupin flower spikes removed to allow secondary ones to come through.

Very warm forecast .....yippee   Need to get more matchsticks to get a tan between my toes 

What's the star in your garden right now
