Chellie you have worked hard but isnt it so satisfying. Ive got to the stage 7years on that I want to make changes. We moved house and took most of the garden with us well half a plant of all I had. I had weird looks when I arrived from my new neighbours with me in my wee car surrounded by a jungle,we thankfully moved not too far so I could do a few trips. The worst trip was with the lilac tree!! Im so glad I took it now its a white one and doing well. Because of the plants needing in the ground when we got here we didnt get the chance to plan too much so now as things need thinned out it seems the time to re do some bits

When I collect them I use 2 plastic bags.  I save all the small thin bags you get from the greengrocery counter in the supermarket etc. to use as binliners in the bathroom bin and these also make ideal slug collecting bags.  Put one bag over your right hand (if you're right-handed) and use this as a glove to keep the slime off you. Place the slugs into the other bag. When you have finished collecting, put the 'glove' bag inside the slug bag and securely knot the top, then put the whole thing in your bin.

Value nappy sacks are good and scented too

If you find it Devonchick, you can sit back on your money mountain!! It only responds to lots of hand extraction, yes you can use chemicals if you want, but the very tiniest bit left will grow again.  Quite honestly in some areas you might just decide to learn to live with it, we have, just trying to ensure it never flowers.   It was actually introduced into Britain by the Romans as a treatment for aches and pains, then it was known as Bishops wort, as Bishops were then the only people rich enough to at so well as to get gout!  A tea made with it, steep a cup of  young leaves in boiling water for about 5 minutes, drink hot. after gardening, if you have sore bones and joints. It does help and aids sleep - this may make you feel less fed up with it! 

Ive not heard this before that was very interesting Bookertoo

What's the weather like in your area?

Kate my Indian Yoghurt sauce

Greek sauce..chilli powder..

I don't do measurements but roughly for half a pint of yoghurt Id use 2tsp of mint sauce, 2,3 tsp sugar, half tsp of chilli powder

The sauce should be quite sweet with a kick off the mint and slight heat off the chilli. Its slightly different every time, its best made at least two hours before you use it and much better the next day. Its actually the sauce you get with a starter in an Indian restaurant (I changed it to greek yoghurt Im sure they would use a natural yoghurt) I asked a waitress once what it was made up of. It would come either red or yellow I dont bother with the food colouring
