Though I'm not technically "pagan," I tend to prefer very earthy, environmentally-friendly ways in my gardening. Over the years my sister and I have both been drawn, often, to various forms of pagan spirituality as well (I really should finish researching our ancestry to figure out why). At any rate, I thought this group might be able to best answer a few gardening questions I have.
Thank you, tremendously and happy gardening.
I wish I could offer some kind of help. You garden in a completely different zone than I do, and I am not familiar with either of your problems. Sorry! Rambling on regardless, :-) the lack of rain might be connected to the snail shells.Good luck.
