Most gar­dens have a spot that isn’t as pretty as the rest – maybe where the bins stand, or the com­post heap or wa­ter butt. Maybe it’s just that the view over the fence isn’t ideal. What­ever it is that needs ad­dress­ing, we’ve got the an­swer in our fea­ture on page 14 – some­times a small ad­di­tion can make a big dif­fer­ence! At the mo­ment I’m rather pre­oc­cu­pied by red lily bee­tles, which in just two days cov­ered two pots of lilies with their lar­vae, which in turn dec­i­mated the fo­liage. There are a cou­ple of chemical op­tions but oth­er­wise it’s a case of hand-pick­ing the lar­vae, though our ex­pert Ian Hodg­son as­sures me the flow­ers should still be fine. Have a great gar­den­ing week!
