This has been a very bad year for me too Sue with slug and snail damage on some of my prized plants. My bearded irises and hemerocallus have been under attack all spring and I've had to resort to slug pellets to save them. Usually my evening snip snip routine is enough. I have never seen slugs go for any of my hardy geraniums and l have many different varieties so l would recommend these ...Mavis Simpson, pink, vigorous , Brookside, bright blue, more compact, Roxanne, blue with a lighter eye, Wargrave Pink, peachy pink . These flower for me all summer long and the bees love them. Sue , nearly all of these l have got from fetes, ( school or church) or plant stalls at gardens l visit that have been opened for charity. Do you have any keen gardening neighbours you could get some freebies from?
