I have to admit to having dug up a few plants, such as a lobelia that was eaten back to a stump, potted them up and put them temporarily into protective custody in the garage (it's light in there)! I'm hoping that will give the victims time to recover a bit before I put them outdoors again.
I'm not sure if a cloche would be 100% protective because don't slugs also live below the soild and could tunnel up into the cosy cloche and nibble away in peace?
It's just such a dreadful summer and I do hope your poor dahlias make it through.
