Received 48 perennial plugs, but what do I do next?

I would also keep them back for next Spring, they will, by then be in 5 inch pots and be a lovely sturdy strong plant.

They need to be planted in their own individual pots so the roots can spread out.

The Echinacea and I think the Salvia and Nepeta will instantly be chewed right off to the ground by slugs, so take care there.

They are definitely running to seed Bekkie, shall we keep some when ripe and have a go. There is not much cutting material yet, but I will keep an eye on them, phlox for next year?

Dark pink, light pink and white.

Mine are good at the moment, are they easy to do from seed, I have been deading heading but could leave some on, and what about root division or is it just cuttings?. 

I have dark pink and white ones.

I love sprouts, mushrooms and liver.

Wouldnt eat anything to do with chicken livers as they blow the poor chicken up so much to get the liver enlarged, terribly painful for the bird.

My birds water shallow dish is absolutely full of slugs by the morning, so not sure any beer in needed, I just tip them on the grass, they are gone by the morning. A complete meal in one go for a hedgepig.

There are some completely safe slug pellets on Amazon, with good reviews
