I would remedy the watering and mulch well with leafmould/garden compost. Feed with Fish Blood and Bone in Feb.
Try to gather fallen affected leaves and burn. I'm sure it;ll recover. If you see growth next year that has died back you can take that out then.
In my experience the field slug and the keeled slug are the ones that do the damage
He looks quite tubby - I wonder how many slugs there were to start with

Hi Yuccaman and welcome to the forum
Son has arranged to share OH's load - he'll pick me up this afternoon and take me to his - he's cooking enchiladas for supper tomorrow we'll go to a local auction then he'll bring me home in the afternoon
I've got some lovely people around me.
Frank - so glad you're back and on the mend - you've been missed.
Alan, glad all has gone well - don't overdo it!
Enjoy your gardens, both of you - gardens really are the best medicine
I agree with Steve and Punkdoc
Yes - and I've managed to pull some weeds up. Think I'm going to need the Under gardener's help at the weekend to sow some peas and broad beans - got to prep the beds first
I'd weed thoroughly first, digging over at the same time to get roots out, before digging any manure in.
