They certainly had spots and greenish and they only liked the dog food,since bleaching and spraying(with the wrong thing) they have been very crafty and not appeared,and yes health and safety would of  closed me down,which is rather worth thinking about as going out to dine seems a good choice but of course I would be done by the R.S.P.C A for slugs,

This one I have saved a few times from fate mainly over watering or draughts but I have many replacements they are easy to do although it takes time to get big.hope yours heals.
