    slugs have eaten half of the leaves on this dahlia

    I’ve resorted to digging up some of the dahlias that have been seriously chomped on by the slugs and snails.  They are now in the recovery ward where the good news is that an earlier admission is starting to sprout healthy new growth.  I will nurse them back into full leaf and with any luck they may provide some autumn colour. Clearly some varieties are more to the molluscs taste than others as I have other dahlias that have been barely snacked upon.

    these dahlias have been moved to a pot away from the slugs

    the slugs seem to leave this variety of dahlia alone.
