Go out at night with a torch and cut the slugs you find, in half.  Alternatively pop cut-in-half plastic bottles over the plants with the top removed, which may give some protection.

If you spread the slug pellets as thinly as it says on the container, it is unlikely the dogs will pick them up.  

A Few Questions....

Annuals do not require much feeding.  Sounds like you are going for over-kill with them!

Peanuts for birds

Whole peanuts are deadly for nestlings.  The parents take them back for the youngsters and they are too big for them to swallow.

Caterpillars and other treats are far more tempting at the moment.  Mealworms will attract robins and blackbirds, which like to feed on the ground.

Thanks folks.  Sadly I don't think they will ever meet again!

Flowers mean they are fertile, but you probably need more than one variety for pollination.

They are doing their best, give them a helping hand by buying a bush of a different variety.

Oh dear!  Naked gardening day was next to Camera Corner.  Now they are apart.  It made me smile every time I saw it.

Bob Flowerdew on GQT was very dismissive of their cropping ability.  Big plant, small crop.

Garlic- rookie error!

It is a bit early for them to be going yellow, naturally.  One year mine collapsed with fungus disease.  It's not that is it?

how much water for my tomatoes

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 00:39

You can tell if they have enough/too much water when beads of water appear along the edges of the leaves.

Tomatoes are a plant that can be grown hydroponically so I would think it is difficult to over-water, but easy to wash all the nutrients out of the grow-bag.

Privet in flower attracts a huge number of butterflies.
