Well it has been a very nice year. I did not spend as much time with plants this year. I stayed mostly on the deck because of the heat and it was an extremely busy year. Here are yesterdays blooms just a matter of time before we will be surprised with a frost.

I see that... the ones I planted in the garden were the smallest plants.. leftovers from the containers.. guess I will have to put a few bigger ones in the ground and pray the slugs stay away

Just a thought in case you do not know this trick.......Put down tissue under plants where slugs are... they will hide under the paper during the night. Check early in the morning and toss them.

I have used an early spring treatment and cut own on the slug populaion in my hostas.
Mix 1 to 10 parts Household Amonia and Water,pour this around the hosta eyes as they emerge in spring. Sails and slugs hatching at thet time underground wont make it to see the light of day.
It's not a complete cure but the armies of slugs here is smaller han it was.
