Runny, try growing them in pots with copper tape around the rim.  Not 100% as the odd slug can be in the compost.  So far mine are pots and in the ground.  

Couldnt be without hostas though.  Some hostas are marked as "slug resistent" having thicker "chewier" leaves.  Hostafan will know better than I do though.  And situation too seems to be a factor re slugs.  for me they do better next to plants that arent attractive to them like heucheras and agastaches and some of fhe grasses

Run off with a married woman Susan?  Me?    Ha ha ha ha ha...........


..well, if she had lots of money maybeeeee 

another lovely day.  

More flowers coming on lemon popsickle Kniphofia.  Agapanthus coming out. Sprayed some yellowing lilies with epsom salts.  It works a treat.  Most of them are fine....just one or two.  "Epsommed" plants in containers as well as tomatoes.  Salvia patens flowering now.  And my Olivia Austin rose is now producing scent.  Kept the best of the cosmos to plant out and fed the rest to the compost bin.

will pop in again later to see my cousin....suffered a stroke a few days back.  Hopefully he will be less apprehensive

enjoy the day folks

We all like different things..obviously ....but I too dont like bare aoil in summer.

 I once had ambitions for a superb,first class lawn.....daisy free, weed free,,stripes, soft to sit and walk on and absolutely level. However, it is hard repetitious work and I got real.  I still have a good lawn...weed free, nice to be on, stripes and sets garden off.  The blades are set higher and it is cut twice a week...if I can.  Love my lawn but it is not a first class one.  It is played on and the dog loves it.  A lawn just to admire is not for me.
