When the sun is shining and the sky is blue there is only one place you will find me.....in the garden. I have always had a great love for plants 😊

@gjones Me either, the leaves are looking bad from slug and snail attack but the flowers are beautiful and so dark.

This chappy is happy 😃 being up off the ground. I must get the others out and hung in pots. I just need a kind person to drill the holes for my hangers. 😁🙏🏼👍🏼

Hi @pixierose do you have any tips to keep the slugs away from my hostas? I've tried using slug repellent gel (pet friendly) as its meant to form a barrier around your plants that reps them. The little blighters are still at it! 😕

The only thing that’s working for me is having them off the ground. I have cats and hedgehogs 🦔 so can’t use pellets. The wool pellets are rubbish. Lots of horticultural grit I think 🤔 would help making sure no leaves are touching the ground. If they are put grit underneath. Hope that helps. 😊👍🏼

Their foliage always adds so much interest to an area. Ours are only shooting now. We're about a month behind the UK.
