Join me in this week's podcast where I discuss how I encourage slug and snail predators into my allotment and vegetable patch.
Each week I share what I have been doing in the garden this last week. This week's task's include
- Potting on and hardening off
- Planting out plants
- A new fence supplied by colour fence
And much more.
Encouraging slug and snail predators into the garden.
In last week's podcast, I spoke of how I deal with slugs and snails. My conclusion was that the best method that I found worked for me was encouraging wildlife into the garden. In this podcast, I talk about how I do this easily and simply.
Hedgehogs and birds are great for controlling slug and snail population along with many other forms of wildlife.
In this episode, I mention a couple of websites as follows
- RSPB website for creating wildlife-friendly gardens.
- Hedgehog Street. An organisation promoting hedgehogs.
I also mention about some hedgehog food that I use to leave out for hedgehogs to eat. The type I use can be bought from Amazon by clicking the image below.
