Your slice of Eden
I live in the UK, near Reading.
I am completely obsessed with the garden this year. I have a big frilly cottage garden. I need some suggestions for plants that flower but are not tasty to snails and slugs. I have had success with these (below) and all the other painfully obvious cottage-y plants like that. What I am after are July-September bloomers, and preferably hardy plants. I am happy growing from seed. I Just don't have what it takes to kill a slug unless it is literally inside my house.
And, by the way, if you are curious, there's a list of plants snails and slug don't like! :)
