Yes  NewBoy2,    this has been the worst year for us with slugs, humid and damp weather all summer

and through the autum,  We planted a lot of summer,  marigolds, pansies etc. all destroyed ,we live about 20 miles outside of Dublin,  and thats the way our weather went this year.

So will hope next year is a lot drier for us , and all gardeners.

maple tree bark

Can anyone help .

We  have a four year old  maple tree,  which the bark has been eaten off,  nearly to the top of the tree.

Only  noticed this in  the last few weeks.  Could it be squirrels,

as we live in the country.
