A Pentland Garden Diary

My home-made natural slug killer is ready!

I was quite surprised when I removed the lid to still see some of the slugs alive – hardy little wotsits – oh, and the smell….! (it didn’t seem to put Cosmo off though – he was definitely up for having a taste, thankfully this brew is only harmful to other slugs).

Sun, Champagne, Sabrage & Stuff!

In fact it was rather an outdoorsy week – after gathering some elderflowers from a neighbour’s garden on Wednesday, Bees & I made some elderflower ‘champagne’ followed by a day at The Royal Highland Show. On Friday I was given the chance to do a Champagne sabrage in Drumsheugh Gardens as part of a lunch hosted by Piper Heidsieck at The Bonham Hotel.
