June podcast - everything you need to know about slugs, and more!

Podcast web banner April 2022

Join Chris and Fiona in this month's episode as they talk about planting out, weeding and feeding. Chris and Fiona compare notes on their most challenging weed – horsetail for Chris, bindweed for Fiona – and share tips to keep on top of them without reaching for weedkiller.

We’re also joined by slug expert Imogen Cavadino, who shares her passion for these less-than-popular gastropods with Sarah. Did you know that each slug has thousands of tiny teeth - no wonder they make light work of our lettuces, and that they they will often blow themselves from high objects using a mucus rope to avoid concussion if they fall!

Finally we answer questions on durable lawns, what to do with excessive grass clippings and planning to grow throughout autumn and winter.
