As a matter of interest, do Canadians generally use the word bugger? I always thought of it as an English usage, rather than American.(American in the sense of the continent, rather than suggesting that it's all one big country.)

Good for you! I plan to do something similar with my tiny front garden - the soil is full of builder's rubble so am going to grow fruit and veg in oak half barrels instead. It will be easier to cover the fruit with nets, and I will be able to protect my lettuces better against slugs

I think you're safe, we haven't got any septics. runs away and hides, and changes his name, and switches off his computer just in case..

What sort of wood irritates the slugs, then? And can we get it in the UK?

Excellent use of space, by the way.
