SLUG PELLETS

The UK ban on blue metaldehyde has been over-ruled by the courts due to poor procedures. However, we will not be stocking this product again as the ban is likely to be re-applied and the product is regarded as harmful to wildlife beyond its target. Alternatives are available.

We no longer stock metaldehyde pellets.


GATE LOCKS

To reduce problems with our gate locks we oil them on a regular basis (if we remember) - about once a month. Unfortunately this does mean that keys may well get a bit messy for a few days so please be aware.

November on the plot

Clean/disinfect greenhouses.

Now is the time to generally clean up your plot, clearing any fallen leaves or other debris from the plot.

If you have any plants in containers raise the container to  allow drainage.

Cover Brassicas with netting if pigeons are a problem.

Insulate outdoor containers with bubble wrap to prevent frost damage.

Burn or dispose of any  debris that is not suitable for composting.

Place grease bands around fruit trees to avoid damage caused by  the winter moth.

Start planting out winter bedding.

Plum - plant trees from now to early March


Blackberries - buy and plant (up to end February)


Broad Beans - sow seeds outside for an early crop


Jerusalem Artichoke - harvest into late winter


At home; don’t forget to put out bird food to encourage winter birds.
