Slug invasion

This week I have been up to the plot most evenings trying to stop the slugs and snails from devastating all of my plants.  They are finding the dahlias ridiculously tasty and 1 poor plant had more than 20 slugs feasting on it on Wednesday night.

It has been pretty disheartening to see the damage they have done, but I’m hoping that with all this rain and warm weather, the plants will put on so much growth that they will overcome the slime attack.

On a happier note, the first dahlias have started blooming and I was able to pick a gorgeous Eveline to put in one of the little bunches of flowers that I prepared for the fete at my children’s school yesterday.
