Slug traps worked
Recently I made some diy slug traps, mainly because the phlox that I planted this summer has been all but destroyed by the little swines. However the plant seems to be responding well to not being eaten and we have the first flowers re appearing which is exciting as I thought that the slugs would have totally wiped out any hope of more flowers :-)
The slug traps are reasonably sucessful and I feel i'd like to share them with you so i'll be blogging about them soon , they are so simple all I used was a robinsons juice bottle and cheap asda own brand lager .
I've loaded a photo of the first few flowers re appearing but you can see the traps in the background. If you were wondering the phlox is planted in the front garden.
