This year the Dutch Irises in the front garden are splendid and have produced more flowers than in years before. This is very heartening because they are a favourite of the resident snails. Followers of my blog will be bored by now with my incessant moaning about the damage to the garden caused by snails.
As I left the house last week my heart sank to find several stems eaten through.
However, with a great deal of spraying with a mild ammonia mix (1:10) and picking them off at every opportunity, there is now a fabulous Iris display which I am very proud of. I love the way the purple flower unwraps itself from its white sheath.
