Dear Real Living: I read with significant consternation the Friday, Jan. 17, article headlined « Prevent a garden slugfest with baits, maintenance. » Perhaps my having attended Pentacle Theatre’s production of « Dr. Doolittle » inspired me to point out a gross injustice. The article itself was fine, but the accompanying photo clearly pictured a Pacific banana slug (Ariolimax columbianus). This species, by far the largest and most obvious slug in our parts, is NOT a garden pest. These critters feed on detritus and dead plant material, not on living vegetation. As such, they actually help clean up our yards, not exfoliate them. Unfortunately, the SJ article will most certainly encourage people not aware of these slugs’ good intentions to dispatch them at every opportunity. Bad for the garden, truly tragic for the banana slugs. — Alex Bourdeau, West Salem One bug does not make a problem! In nature, there are always some garden pests chewing on plants; that’s just the way it is. However, not all pest damage is significant enough to warrant action. Even the healthiest gardens encounter bugs at one time or another, yet they still produce a beautiful harvest. As gardeners, we must each consider the level of pest activity that we are willing to tolerate. Where: Browsers are found nibbling on gardens, tender perennials and young trees. I bought a new build house which was built on land previously probably thought unsuitable due to being damp and low lying, it had been a garden nursery. The garden didn’t drain, however the builders are only responsible for an area 1m ( I think it was) from the house walls. The builders also said that drainage will improve over time once land has settled. I’m not sure how it has panned out as the house was sold on. Very annoying. Prob not much you can do without spending money. I have had very good luck with my compost and mulch(alfalfa rotted hay). I started out building my beds by sheet mulching the area. Cardboard, Agricultural molasses, compost, more molasses based fertilizer with mushroom extracts, more compost and then a heavy layer of rotted hay. Five seasons in, Now i use a cover crop and chop and drop all season. clover is great at fixing nitrogen and i find it in areas the soil needs repair, it goes away as the soil enriches. You might consider putting down a good molasses based fertilizer( i get mine in bulk 55 gal drums) and planting in a cover crop to your damaged areas Let that brew all winter and see if it helps. I am finding minerals are huge in soil health. My climate and soil is similar to yours, we are high prairie desert with wind and heat extremes. I have been fortunate to have a very robust garden this season with minimal to almost no watering. A range of products and hand-picked gardening offers exclusively for Saga customers. Where: One of the most destructive pests of both garden variety and wild asparagus. Will chickens destroy my garden? In the years I’ve been advocating for the deep mulch method of gardening, I’ve had a couple people ask if I’ve ever had problems using non-organic hay. We get our hay from a variety of sources, and looking back, I’m almost certain some of it had to be sprayed at some point. However, as I always had thriving gardens by using our compost and hay mulch, I figured people who were concerned about non-organic hay or non-organic animal manure were worrying unnecessarily. I was wrong. “The biggest lesson I learned from Michael…is that first gardens sleep, then creep and finally leap,” she said, because gardens change as they grow. “The second biggest lesson I learned from Michael is that there are no mistakes, but there are learning lessons. You plant something in the wrong spot, and you can dig it up and try it elsewhere, or try something different next time.” 2015 saw an eruption of mini volcanos. It’s the warm and wet weather that encourages them. And not just in the fields. There’s been way too much mole action in the garden too, and I’m fed up. One hill I could cope with. Two, even. But now there are three – as well as plenty of signs that he/she/they are digging under the flower beds. Which is not good. Not least because once they begin to breed there could be loads more. So leaving well alone was not an option. I wanted the mole/s out. I’m sad you’ve had such trouble with your garden this year. I want to suggest you research the use of chemtrails in your area. These are easy to see in the sky when they’re being dropped from airplanes. We created a clear plastic roof over our garden to avoid their harmful chemicals. I believe it helped us with our first garden this year. Chemtrails are happening all over the world and have been for quite awhile. You can search “chemtrails” on the web. It is also called Geo-Engineering. If you are currently deep-mulching and having great results, you don’t really have anything to worry about, although I wouldn’t recommend adding any more hay to your garden until you are sure of its history. I have people emailing me CONSTANTLY with glowing reports of their deep hay mulch, and I’ve had beautiful results as well, so I don’t think *all* hay is a problem, and if you can verify your hay/straw is clean, I would absolutely still use it. I’ve alluded several times in my newsletter, and here on the blog, that I’ve had a rather bizarre, and quite unproductive gardening year. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/weeds/conventional-weed-killers.htm https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/weed-it-and-reap-how-to-make-your-garden-more-appealing-without-chemicals.htm In search of a publisher for his latest book, Sacramento garden designer Michael Glassman found a perfect fit an ocean away – in Australia. The result is a problem-solving work of art with built-in appeal on both sides of the Pacific. Sometimes there will be problems in the vegetable garden. There is always a cause and there is often a cure or control. Hello am66,     Is there any way you can find a space in your back garden for the feeders, I assume that is fenced off for your greyhound as he would be a good deterrent to the cats.  I’m sorry you found feathers and remains of a bird but it is possible a Sparrowhawk could have predated the bird and not a cat as I think cats tend to take their prey away/ home and in tact.     There is an ultrasonic device that seems to get good reviews on Amazon website  HERE   and I know a fellow member on here (  Monkeycheese ) has just purchased two of them so maybe when he has had chance to test them out he can advise you how well they work.    Good luck, hope the cats get the message to stay out of your garden so you can continue to enjoy the visiting birds.    Dudeni, if it’s thick clay and north facing, I’d consider going grass less. You’ll never get a good lawn with those conditions. You’ll be permanently fighting moss and bad drainage. Your problem isn’t easily rectified and lack of sun is something you can’t solve. I’d seriously consider a different style of garden. Where: Browsers are found nibbling on gardens, tender perennials and young trees. I think I poisoned my garden. Straw and manure are both completely unsafe now and I recommended in my composting book that gardeners now need to stay away from both except under very narrow restrictions, such as they grew it themselves or got manure from an animal that has not been fed any hay from outside sources. Really frustrating. But the Magic Garden, as it’s affectionately called, may not be in bloom for much longer. Stewart said an official with the post office told her last week the garden has to go. A USPS spokeswoman confirmed to 41 Action News there are concerns about overgrowth, adding the appearance is « not favorable. » Erozon Max vigrx Testo Ultra VigRX power up premium Zevs erogan eracto Erozon Max Zevs
