Last year was especially bad it seems, i had slug damage on alot of so called resistant plants like sedums and foxgloves.. surprised the sluds didn't all have heart attacks lol...
So far up in newcastle it's been cold, dry and windy which has meant i've hardly seen a slug (YET!) but things are only really just starting to come now, so the slugs will no doubt arrive soon enough! I know they will just be hiding somewhere, i've already started putting down my organic pellets in anticipation of the battle to come.
Achilea seemed to not have any problem last year, i think the only truely resistant plants are the wild flower types, of which achilea probably falls into, so think like red valarian too would be a good shout.
