I love these too,S.lad..easily divided too,aren't they? ...
Wonder if the snails got yours early in the growing season,Paul? ..I used to find a few round the base,when they were just emerging,and then they always seem ok..

They are such pretty flowers and a wonderful colour blue, mine flowered in the shade I have got them in a barked area no slugs ever get them.

They're lovely. Might try 6d' idea of shade and bark if that stops the slugs - running out of sunny spots anyway.
