I've got dog friendly grit that turns to goo in the rain, bio friendly pellets for special out of reach places and a nightly hunt with a pair of scissors. It's disgusting but quick death 

I'm winning just about

I have one that I bought with coloured leaves, winter colour I thought although they do need some shelter, then went worryingly yellow but survived to flower and grow a bit. after this winter, the same look but so too in the garden centre and left exposed 

I've read these are a thug in the right conditions, but also slow grower at first

 R.e.a.l spring morning here, chirpy chappies and chapettes coming to feed, one little brown thing, bluetit sized with an impressive warble on it, if anyone can identify? 

Finally managed to rehouse my Mammoth hosta, looks great in North facing corner with clematis behind it  so pleased 

tidied up my two work areas before the rain came, good news about that is I'm really struggling to find slugs or many snails  (less than 5 the other night,  less than 10 today, and next generation now) in the past week. This has never happened to me before due to my forgetfulness or lack of faith, but Flynn has his last turn in the garden now which suits my hunting times. Gearing up for round two, ding ding!
