Sadly the two either side have been 'got at' even with protection against nasties.,and the first time it's happened in four years.More than happy with this one though :o)

Some of mine never made it through the winter. I see it as an opportunity to visit the garden center and find something new.

Sorry to hear you have only two decent ones this year,Val,but you have one more than me ! Lol..looking back,I was quite late this year,digging in the 'slug gone' ,as I usually do it in February..but it never stopped raining ! and with the mild winter,the slugs eggs had a field day when they hatched.earlier than usual,I guess :o(.

Whats the 'slug gone' Sandra.....mine have had a field day this year.They've eaten nearly all of my Aster and Phlox... little 'B.....s, like you couldn't get on.

Thank you Driad,it is..better to have one,than none at all :o)and I'm fine thanks..even better on Monday when I get this pot off my wrist..!

That is stunning Sandra ... love it. :o)

Slug gone,is an organic product,Val.made from Sheeps wool,and the fibres stick to their skin..sounds lovely doesn't it? I have used it for a few years,but it was under another name,before garden centres started selling it commercially..I used to get it from a well known local Nursery in our area..it's quite expensive,but if you Google it,it will give you all the info,if you are interested..or look for it in one of your outlets..Well worth it,if you remember to dig it in at the right time ! Lol..it also acts as a Fertiliser..Sorry you have lost some of your plants too.:o(
