Bit like laying on a banquet for all the tramps in the area in the,hope they will eat their fill and then move on. They and the slugs will be back....in fact they will make it their new home.
I have several hostas in pots and in the garden not affected by slugs or snails except for 2. One is being nibbled but I cannot see the culprit .....there was dying daffodil foliage nearby ...it's now gone so I'm hoping the critter has gone too. Have cut out,the damaged leaves so hoping. The second is badly planted.....a geranium is sprawling over it and a previously damaged lupin is close by. So, there are reasons why slugs, etc., are doing their work. I will cut back the early flowerimg geranium to, hopefully, solve the problem
