Nin - there are wildlife fiendly slug pellets which do not harm birds or hedgehogs or pets.
I have learned that the weather's going to get me one way or the other. We have hard winters so I have gradually learned what is tough enough to survive and what isnt and plant and plan accordingly. This winetr was mild so eveything has been racing away and I've had glorious roses and peonies and oriental poppies and hostas and many more..........
Until the weather decided to sort out my optimism with a murderous hailstorm and 120kph winds that stripped, shredded, decapitated or flattened too many treasures to list and left the garden devastated.
Nature can be glorious but can also be a bitch.
