Small Garden Story

Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!

Hostas and....

I adore the elegant spikes of hosta leaves as they emerge. It is such a shame that my enthusiasm seems to be equalled by SLUGS! Except for this lovely variegated Francis Williams, which grows in a large pot where I can keep some control over the slug population, I have given up on hostas for the time being. Snails are also causing me grief in the greenhouse - attacking the emerging dahlia shoots which must be much tastier than the tubers, which I actually tried eating the other day and would most definitely NOT recommend. Planted a row of sugar snap peas at the weekend and I confess to safeguarding them with a good sprinkle of slug pellets....
