go ukcowgirl i discovered the scissors solution last year ,it's quick they don't suffer long (i make sure I get them in one go) and the birds have their breakfast cut up for them.I have lost so much to slugs,snails and caterpillers it's unreal, so i don't feel guilty any more .Over the years I have spent a fortune on socalled anti slug and pest gadgets and repelants but no more it's scissors for me from now on.Sometimes it's the simplest thing that work best.

Peonies

<span>I have the same problem with a Peonie . I was given 3good fleshy tubers from a plant that had grown so big that the man that owned it could hardly get into his greenhouse and was getting soaked when he passed it .One day I admired its amazing dark pink colour and he immediately got a spade and dug me up three large tub res,That is how I know they came from a healthy plant. I planted them the way he told me but all I have had is a few leaves.,his just keeps getting bigger and producing many more flowers.I have had it for 3years and it's not getting any bigger.Any sugestions on what I could do with it to help it along.

Where do  i find the validation for this site?Thanks Margaret.
