At least I'm not the only one.  War has been declared on the ridiculous amount of slugs I have this year...

Slugs and Sedums

Posted: Today at 13:59

I've put some sedums in this year and am loving the beautiful pink colour at this time of year.  It is just that the leaves have big holes in and this morning I found slug slime and even what i assume was a slug poop on the flower. 

I've just found sedums are on a list of slug proof plants, so wondering is it really slugs eating them or something else...

 Looks like slug slime on the flower and poop ?

Any ideas ? thank you. 

Does anyone know what this little critter might be?

Thank you Dove, a friend has just said the same.  Friend of Foe do you know?

Ever have the feeling you are battling things eating your plants and plant diseases...

I checked this today and it had a very strong lemon scent.  I was told by another parent it was lemon mint.  Never seen hat before, so still learning

Yes, thank you nutcutlet, she is finding going into a big hall for lunch hard and having mini panic attacks which hope will get better with time, super tired, but loving it when she is there.  She is at the stage of realising this is 5 days a week and that part isn't going down to well.... bless her, they grow up so fast.

The evening primrose has really meaty tap roots and they seem a bit out of control with the number of them.  Maybe I'll leave a couple and clear the rest. 

The v tall flower I think had a yellow flower, but most of them flowered over the summer holiday.  I'll have a look tomorrow and see if I can see any of them in flower still. 

However I'm guessing I just need to clear all the rubbish and then get it ready for spring.  Whilst keeping an eye on my little one in her early days at school
