Salvias...what am i doing wrong?

Posted: 29/04/2016 at 00:25

Don't know if slugs and snails are a problem in your garden?  Salvias get gnarly woody bases from which new shoots appear quite early, mine pop up about March unprotected but I know that slugs and snails will be on them straight away, the tiny buds are snack size and tasty 

I've used pellets previous years,  this year it's been every cold rainy evening from March onwards, and my Salvias are loving me for it

I used to flatly refuse corporate get togethers, and never got slapped for it  my argument was always time better spent elsewhere 

time spent in the garden got most of my underplaying achieved beneath monster phormium 

started arranging potted plants out in the last areas cleared. Still umming and aRRing a lot but I've got plenty of time to decide. Potted up all my rescue plants left laying around this past week or two , well I've never much subscribed to the emergency dying plant BS when neglected plants refuse to die in protest or else I just grow stubborn species
