• The (Vegetable) Garden’s Gone to Pot

    23rd July 2012Stephanie's BlogStephanie Donaldson

    In an attempt to keep the slugs and snails at bay I’ve been planting as much as I can in pots. We are on our 3rd sowing of runner beans on the allotment and unless a. the weather improves, or b. Andrew is prepared to spend the night there in pursuit of slugs and snails, it seems unlikely we will be dealing with the usual gluts this year. At least this way when I go out on my evening slug hunt there is a limited area to check and it is easier to protect the plants with copper tape, wool pellets and nematodes.
