My #SixonSaturday this week comes from Turkey. One of the things I love most about going on holiday is seeing all the unusual plants and flowers in bloom.
It's not all-singing and dancing flowers and veg in the garden you know! Sometimes, despite our best defences, disease or pests can attack our much loved planting! This year's Christmas day dinner may be in danger!
On a Saturday, gardeners from around the world share six things from their garden in their blogs and on social media. It's a great way to see over the fence of what is going on in other people's gardens. As we have a gorgeously, sunny Autumnal day in Glasgow, I thought I'd share #SixonSaturday from my garden as we slide into October.
If you Summer window boxes, hanging baskets or pots are looking a bit played out, it's time to reset the stage for Act Two with some wonderful Winter planting.
You may know that eggshells are a great way to deter slugs from chomping on your prized plants but how do you gather enough eggshells in order for this barrier method to be successful?

If you want to prolong those flowers in your garden which are still blooming, then you need to keep deadheading!
