Jan Robertson organises a series of outing to various gardens. This visit was to Fingringhoe where we visited a lust garden at the height of the drought.

Fingringhoe is very rural - sheep waiting for their feed
Lovely Hostas - note, no slug damage.
This Hosta has been got at by the slugs What is the secret?
The secret is the top Hosta is in an earthenware pot which has been sprayed on the outside with this spray. Chris tells us it will stop slugs from climbing the pot for 2 months or so. The leaves of the Hosta cannot be in contact with any other shrub as the slugs climb that & transfer their affection that way. The lower Host was planted in the earth.
Note the baby Bananas forming at the base of the flower
Just a few hundred metres away is Wivenhoe.
When we were there the tide was at it's highest.
Thank you Jan & the Gardening Committee for arranging such a pleasent afternoon. The weather was kind to us as well.
