My poor hostas have been chewed to bits by snails - only ever had slugs in Belgium and never this voracious - as well as stressed by the drought. The one that is holding up best is Dream Weaver which is gorgeous.
Hope your tenants have completely cleared out now and no more nasty surprises in store. Catalogue all the problems and take photos and definitely withhold the deposit.
After her exertions yesterday, Rasta, aged 10, is prancing around like a playful puppy today. Clearly had a good sleep! I shall finish cutting out the new frock and then go and get dirty, and maybe a bit browner too, planting out some more brassicas and "discussing" raised beds with OH. He wants to change all my plans and dimension to save sawing a few planks in two. Short termism or what?
