Hideous beasts the lot of them. Mine look suspiciously like the Spanish variety. And I saw one on my kniphofia too! That's it, I'm getting rid!

Ugh yuk. Don't they eat plants then?? I imagined them happily chomping their way through entire trees. I saw 3 of them curled up together, must have been some repulsive slug orgy thing. So you reckon I should leave them be?

Last few evenings I have seen lots of enormous orange slugs slithering along the sleepers, lawn and paths. I can only imagine they have recently hatched out. I have collected about 20 each night but no doubt there are many many more. I don't think our hedgehogs will want to eat them, in fact I'm slightly concerned they might have eaten the hedgehogs!

Lily, I'm seriously envious of your woodland garden.. not of the amount of work that must be involved though
