I wonder if anyone has same problem as me.. 2yrs ago got rid of pond with frogs in.. bad move.. did`nt realise what a wonderful job they do... we must over the last 6wks killed over 200 slugs..very big orange ones too... lost count with snails.. I would have no flowers or veg if we did`nt go out most nights with our torch.... dwarf runners in gr/hse are fine but outside all but one have vanished...we do have a home made water feature full of big stones.. to my amazement there is a frog living in it so am now thinking of doing a small sunken large pot with just rain water in & hopefully get more frogs back into the garden..what plants do well at keeping it clear in stagnant water...

I am stopping using them... plants in plugs are usually too wet with flies in plus last order was supposed to have 24 plugs of busy lizzie but they have turned out to be petunias...most annoying..

you mention weedkiller for this problem but what if you have veg growing there.. is it safe or does it need to be a vacant plot to use weed killer
