Just planted Low Ho Silver this summer and it’s already blooming. A bit of slug damage but still a nice surprise. I think I’m going to like this one 🙂

I just got Low Ho Silver this year and hope to get some blooms come spring - and I am sure I'll get the slug damage too! Big Grin

It seems like the fall blooms are more susceptible to insect damage. Guess they are all starving for something to munch on by then. It's so fun to see them bloom though.

I suppose it's a good reminder to get the Slug bate out next season. Though Tom I hope your right in my case. It's so odd, I have snails everywhere. Blinking No one else in my area seems to have have them. I guess it's my neighborhood. Lilli I hope to see pictures of yours.

When some pots were cleaned up last week I noticed a number of baby snails. They were about the size of this "O".

I wonder if Sevin dust would kill them?

I'll have to give that a try Tom. I tip my hat to you.

yes it will. I have used seven dust rarely because I don't like using pesticides and comet with bleach will run them off too but the effect comet has on creepys is short lived. And if it rains after you apply it then all was for naught. Seven kills them quickly and I think goes into the soil and kills stuff. Shrug! It will kill garden worms too. Sad So if you use it think of it as powdered gold. You would only want to sprinkle that sparingly and if necessary. Smiling
