?Slugs and snails are a major nuisance in spring when it’s warm and wet. I’ve tried plenty of traps and other organic alternatives to using bait and have recently discovered the website bugofff.com– it has lots of different ideas, including skewering!

As the weather heats up those patches will dry outtoddler pillow cases, meaning the garden will need more water, costing you time and money. Planting a living mulch (groundcovers) is a good alternative to bark. Consider arctotis, gazania, lamb’s ear, Cape daisy, Coprosma ‘Poor Knights’, catmint or blue star creeper.

Aerating your compost is probably the last thing you feel like doing when it’s cold and wet. But that kind of weather can turn your compost into a soggy mess if there’s no air flow. No air means no decomposition, so grab that fork and get turning.

If you start potting up a few flowering annuals or shrubs to give family and friends now, they’ll look lush and lovely by Christmas time. Save money by buying smaller plants and moving them to bigger pots that they can grow into. Add an attractive pebble mulch and a pretty ribbon and you’re good to go.

Pottery Barn's much-anticipated "Friends" collection is finally here, and it was definitely worth the wait.
