I found these under an old planet pot not used for a few years. I want to know if they are leopard slugs or do I need to kill them now?  


Egg identification - any ideas?

Oh I am glad they're not eggs! Thanks everyone for your help! I would have hated to bring more slugs or snails (or even worsI) into our garden. 

Every year i tell myself I will do gardening this year so we can appreciate our garden and every winter the dog reclaims it. Gotten fed up with it so this is the year my green fingers will remain on! the extent of my knowledge  has been how to kill teasels (which our garden is plagued with them but none this year think they've gotten the message!) and planting bulbs but I think most of mine have died and decomposed as I can't even find them in the pots! But thanks to everyone being really helpful on here my knowledge Is growing.

When I was planting some flowers that I got at the weekend (from a garden centre) I noticed some little eggs in the soil. The 'shell' was crispy so to speak and had white liquid inside

This is in the begonias but also found in an old bag of compost that I had. Very spherical in shape


This was in periwinkle and is more oval shaped.

I'm currently redoing my garden. There are existing plants (some of which i dont know what they are but keep coming back so not fighting them anymore as they look nice) in there but am looking to fill it out and add colour. I can't work out if I should be looking for full sun or partial shade suitable plants. We get the sun until about 2-3pm. By about 5pm the whole garden is in shade.

what should I be looking for?
