Grows on trees

I pay scant regard to the tree. One of the scenery flats, it towers far above the leading player: the soil.

But yesterday I noticed apples - sweet, crisp, juicy apples. A legion of them, hanging nonchalantly from every branch.

Whilst my gaze was averted, Nature had laid out a feast.

  1. Slugs cant cross copper

    Best thing for clay soil is some sharp sand and some well rotted manure

  2. Ah yes, sharp sand, I'm now well versed in its properties. I'm in the middle of double-digging sand throughout the plot. It's pretty hard work though.

    As for copper, isn't it only useful if you have pots? On account of slugs' ability to burrow?
