thanks for the replies guys i'm based in Cumbria Whitehaven to be exact.
the garden gets a regular mulch of compost, leaf mold and bark and through the growing months the garden gets a balanced feed as well as water.
last year was a very quiet year for slugs and snails as I started early with the pest control!
im just agrivated because I put a lot of time and effort into this area of the garden and my expectations keep getting dashed. I know its supposed to flow and be natural but it just isn't working at all.
