If you scatter a few slug pellets about some will fall in amongst the leaves and on the ground-that will help

Glad you found a few of the culprits any way-I assume they are now in orbit or heaven

Use a glyphosate spray or gel-like Roundup-but you might have to repeat the treatment a couple of times-don't expect an instant result-it takes 2/3 weeks to work

Mulch or covering will just make the matter worse

Does anyone know what plant this is please?

The stem looks like a Delphinium-because it is a Delphinium

Early warning Gary and all-have just nipped to Sainsbury's- the kids are out in force running round the aisles -go early to avoid the crowds-managed to kick two.

Chicken salad here-I do like the sound of kid's meals-do they come with toys like MacDonalds?

Is it ok to sow foxgloves now?

If all the leaves get munched then probably not-they should be outside though-why not pot them on and get a bigger tougher plant to plant out in the autumn-perhaps you could put the pots out of slug's reach?

Ah cool, I had it in the ground last year but I think it had too much shade so I've put it in a big container. What kind of growth should I expect before it flowers? ( If it is a hibiscus that is)

They seem to take a while to get going-so do not give up on it yet-if there are no flowers this year-they should be in 12 months or so
