Yesterday we took a trip to our local Asda store where they are starting to get the plants in.
On one stand I was delighted to find these herbs, good condition,quite large, healthy plants at an amazing £2.00 per pot.
I'm sure that the garden centres would be twice this price and so I snapped up 7 pots and am now regretting not taking more.
I have 2 Lavenders, 3 different types of Thyme, 1 variegated sage and 1 Rosemary.
I think I may be able to split the Thyme's as they are so bushy and will soon thicken up once the weather improves.
Please enlarge picture to see how good they are.
Notice Princess getting in on the picture.
Also notice the snail shells in front of the herbs.
I have a question for you. Do snails suffer from any diseases?
In my ivy I have always had what seems like 100's of snails, I don't mind them and usually buy plants that they don't touch so as not to have to kill them. But they all seem to have disappeared and now there are literally none.
Where have they gone? The foxes come each night for the food and I was wondering if they have eaten them, if so how do they get them out of the shell leaving it intact.
I don't use chemicals in the garden so they haven't been sprayed.
It's a mystery, any ideas?
