This happened to mine as well, when I asked a rose-breeding nursery where I bought some roses once, they told me it was a bug which gets in just as the first shoots are sprouting and to spray them at the first sign of shoots.

Well done to your wife Andy, congratulations. It is a bit disappointing to be so close, isn't it, but depending on how many were entered, it's still a great achievement!

keeping slugs off the hostas

I think the slugs like the pale leaved/varigated ones, must be more tender.

None of my dark leaved ones have been touched.

Hi Dove, where are you going on holiday? Hopefully somewhere nice and warm to make up for the dreadful weather that's been going on lately.

Please don't use Jeyes fluid around cats, its extremely toxic to them. I know they can be a nuisance but killing someone's pet is a bit extreme. Waterpistols work well or you could try sprinkling pepper or chilli powder around your plants.

Cats will not touch anything with Jeyes Fluid on it, they keep well away. You can ask my two!
