FOR THOSE MEMBERS WHO REQUIRED JEANS RECIPE FOR THE GARLIC CURE TO STOP SNAILS ATTACKING YOUR HOSTAS HERE IT IS
Put 2 garlic BULBS ( not cloves) into 2 pints of water and simmer until soft.
Top back up to 2 pints and store in a lidded jar.
Add 2 tablespoons of the garlic liquid to 2 gallons of water and, using a rose on the can, sprinkle the liquid over the hostas. Repeat every two to three weeks.
Not guaranteed as a full cure but is helpful!
IF ANYONE ONE HAS SUCCESS WITH THE CURE PLEASE SHARE WITH US THANKS
Linda Robson was great thoroughly enjoyed the morning with her she really made us feel comfortable and at ease we had the filming done outside in the back garden as it was such a beautiful morning the producer was nice and the camera crew wish we could do it all over again as it went so quick in all it took 2 hours the programme will take in some of the history of The Becontree Estate and the right to buy scheme when thy saw the Garden then wanted to film there Linda is really is down on your level and so funny she gave us a kiss when she left. .
Love Peter & Kathy
