We took a trip to our local garden centre this morning to get something to stop the slugs and snails from munching on our runner beans and marigolds. I came accross this box of child and eco-friendly slug repellant, it’s made from recycled ceramic basins and toilets amongst other things. It doesn;t look too pretty but hopefully it will keep the slugs away.
The herbs are doing well from last year, we have orgeano, mint, thyme, bay and lavender, I need to get some chives and corainder out soon too. The peas are begining to look strong and the strawberry plants have flowered, the potatoes are growing very tall, I’ve even had to trim them to encourage them to grow outwards.
The spring flowers have dies now, so the daffodils, crocus and hyacinths have gone for another year and in their replacement the tumbelina petunias, nemesia, hydrangeas, lobelia, geraniums, roses, stocks, peonies, prunella and many more have began to appear to replace them.
Now I must get on and make some more progress with the patchwork quilt I started, this sunny weather keeps dragging me away from it! Take a look at 1st Unique Gifts for some crafty inspiration.
