Do slugs and snails like Brunnera

This question was asked by
Val B

Is this plant resistant to slugs and
Snails

Hi Valerie
Slugs and snails will have a nibble on any brunnera if they fancy

You could try making a garlic spray or buy the garlic spray from garden centres

Recipe for garlic spray
Finely chop two or three large cloves of garlic after removing the protective, papery skin around the bulbs.
Mix the garlic with one tablespoon of vegetable oil, one teaspoon of liquid soap and 1 litre of water, stirring well.
Spray hostas, brunneras or anything slugs/snails enjoy

Hope this helps

Kind regards

I was chatting with you on Sunday at Tatton looking for a Midnight Rose Heuchera but sadly you’d sold out at the show but you did say that you had one at home and if I sent you my details you’d take it to Harrogate for the September show, I’m going on Friday 13th So I’ll be in about 12noon to collect it.
Many thanks
Jill

RHS Hampton Court Palace 2019

This year has been gorgeous weather for shows, and Hampton Court Palace was no exception. Sunny blue skies all the way. We got a lovely new gold medal for our display as well, so sunny times all around! Here’s a few photos of our display.


Pictured above are two popular plants Tiarella ‘Emerald Ellie’ and Heuchera ‘Tangerine Wave’.

Heuchera ‘Burgundy Bill’ is new this year, and we’ve still got some in stock! (just click the name to take you to the website). Beautiful large burgundy-red foliage, which glows bright in the sunlight. Pretty pure white flowers on tall burgundy-red stems great for cut flowers, show themselves well again the richer foliage. Bred by us to be hearty in British weather.
