Talkback: Slug-proof plants

I bought a calla lily..it was gorgeous...planted it out and low and behold the bulb was totally annihilated by Sid the Slug, pretty peeved...the lily cost me a few bob...

ANYWAY on a positive note...COSMOS, MARGERITES (not sure how to spell this) do well, i havent had any slimey slug probs with these...

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 14:13

Hi David...I am new to clematis and have some growing in the garden...I think I will be deadheading them when the flowers are spent....don't know if this is the right thing to do.....

 there area very interesting gardening clips on you tube about gardening...I saw one about looking after petunias the other day and it was very interesting...maybe there will be some on looking after clematis....
