As the slugs have eaten a whole load of the new plants I’d put in, the flowerbed near the kitchen has been looking a bit bare (which, realistically, means more bloody creeping yellow buttercup). I had a load of foxglove seedlings in the cold frame that were getting a bit leggy – the instructions on the packet said to plant them out in October but no chance.
So I ended up putting a load in the wildflower meadow, the lower garden, the upper bank, the bed at the bottom of the garden and the bed by the kitchen (I had loads of plants).
I assume that (as they are poisonous) the slugs won’t eat them. They aren’t terribly pretty as the plants but when they flower they are glorious – for about three weeks.
