Protect your blooms from critters.
Protecting your plants against slugs and snails is especially important.
Slugs love beer and will get quite distracted from your blooming plants if there is a pint of beer on offer! Slugs are attracted by the fermentation gases produced by beer – and they have good taste – real ales and Guinness are the best for distracting them with.
Be sure to plant the traps at the edges of plant beds to be sure they don’t have a snack on your plants before they head to the pub!
Another way is to cover the rim of your plant pots with Vaseline or any grease to form a protective barrier. You can also mix the grease with sand as a double deterrent.
Show us your blooms…
Please send us your photos, sketches, and even oil paintings to show us how your plants are progressing.
If you have gone the extra mile, or at least the extra foot, we will be awarding a prize for the best, biggest and brightest blooms.
