Learner Gardener - Yorkshire - hello there to another novice gardener and doggy owner, I bet you have fun with your apprentices, can't imagine trying to garden with puppies around, it's hard enough with my 6 year old puppy-like Tibetan Terrier. Yes I am loving the gardening a lot, the previous owners were very keen gardeners so it's well established, but the elderly lady was on her own for a few years, so a lot of chopping, cutting back and weeding has been going on, but a year on I am pleased to say it's looking a lot better and I have started to add to it myself.
Daisyheadcase - going out at night with a torch to remove slugs, would I think, finish me off on the sheer anxiety alone, lol, you are very brave.... The egg shells and gravely may work, but think my dear dog may decide to chew on them, but will give it a try, thanks. I have copper tape around the pots so that's sorted, I hope! Thanks so much for the link, I will go and have a read, appreciate your help.
