Riverside Slug

Project Description

Riverside Slug

‘Custard’ the slug was in a poor state of repair at Riverside Garden Centre, Bristol and had been sadly neglected.

I repaired her internal structure and gave her a total makeover with my own choice of slug-resistant plants ( listed below). See here for stop motion of the painting process. www.sallydove.co.uk/moving-image/

Alchemilla Mollis, Agapanthus, Nasturtium, Thalictrum, Fennel, Pulmonaria, Ferns, hardy Geraniums, Californian Poppy, Salvia, Echinops, Sempervivum, Verbena bonariensis, Euphorbia, Symphyotrichum spp ( Michaelmas daisies)
