Thanks Wintersong will try the grit followed by the garlic to be sure. Do you make your own solution if so how? Dumb blonde moment

No GW!!!! Gutted, I enjoy my weekly fix of Monty & Co!

Happy Anniversary Excitable Boy, have a great night out.

Kate, I managed to get 3 hours out in the garden.....bliss, even thought it was mass clearing, still loads more to go but its nice to see a weed free area

A question to all, I have some hostas to plant out and have a perfect spot for them, what does everyone use for slug problems? I dont want to use anything chemical as we have 2 dogs. All tips gratefully received x

Hi guys, thank you all for the lovely welcome and all the info you provided, your gardens sounds lovely. I have taken some 'before' photos, gonna be a long time for the 'afters' lol. However I will upload what pics i have, just need to find my camera hasnt seen daylight since we moved here, which is soooooo frustrating especially at times like this. Will make it a job for the weekend. Just got home from work, have been looking forward to getting in the garden all day and thought that although its very dull and cloudy the rain would hold off but alas as i write its gone extremely dark and yes little spots are hitting the window!.

I hadnt heard of the programme Beechgrove til reading here last night but luckily I have sky tv and its repeated on Sundays at 12pm so have set it up to record. Am looking forward to it.

The rain doesnt seem to be coming to much so Im gonna chance to get changed! Speak soon x

Hi everyone, just joined the site this evening. Have been reading all the comments/ threads and  you all sound so friendly and helpful   . Im not at all an expert at gardening, just enjoy it when I manage to get out there. We moved to our small cottage just over 2years ago and are lucky enough to have 3 gardens  (our main reason for moving). Most of the back garden was established when we got here apart from an area right at the bottom which we have fenced off and I am currently clearing  in the hope of keeping chickens. We have built an extension to the front of the cottage, completed externally but lots to do inside yet and with months of storing building materials the garden has been in a mess so we are currently building low stone walls, creating beds etc. Not a very big front garden and we have managed to salvage some shrubs so its not completely desolate. We also have a 3rd area which is the other side of our neighbours garden! I know its sounds a bit daft but think it goes back years when people sold off areas of land when they were in need of money or unable to upkeep it (the cottage was built around 1896). This garden is where we have loads to do! we have dug just a couple of beds which we used last year for spuds, beans, onions etc and the rest has just been a case of mowing the weeds lol! Its all a bit of a mess. This year we are hoping to develop it a bit more, depending on time, weather and money! Ive done a rough design of what Id like, very amateurish im sure but I have to start somewhere I guess. Because we went on hols early April, Im very behind with my seed sowing and the current weather isnt helping either but hooray my beetroot seedlings are appearing so all may not be lost. Hope I havent bored you with such a long intro but Im hoping I will be able to call on you and pick your brains  on a regular basis. Can I ask where you are all from? Im in South Glos. Hope to catch up with you all soon x
