Lynsey....those that slugs don't like?   If you have some decent soil that's holds some moisture look at the acteas

Mine are about to flower and when they do I will post a picture..  Beautiful dark architectural foliage and flowering at a height of 6' they are superb

Aster frikartii monch usually is free of slugs

Anemone wild swan too

Verbenas.....rigida, homestead purple and bonariensis

Salvias like guaranitica and uliginosa seem untroubled by slugs as are agastaches.  I find scabious fairly resistant too

Heucheras, brunneras and bergenias.  For me astrantias and astilbes seem untroubled by slugs.

Cannas, artemisias, euphorbias, helichrysum, eryngiums, gazanias, lychnis, nepetas, libertias .........all seem not to be attacked  and provide good colour and shape

Supernoodle, were they named varieties?  But they need moisture and bare root right now isn't ideal.  When growing next spring they should be better.

Difficult sometimes watering in pots.  This very hot weather really means thorough drenching twice a day if compost doesn't hold enough moisture.  My plants in containers are watered twice a day if sunny.
