Hi to you in Bolton,
I was originally from Prestolee just outside Bolton before I moved to Australia 23 years ago.
I miss the seasons and the moors but not the rain. Goodluck with your growing.

Hello and Welcome. :thumbleft:
I have an ongoing slug problem here too, I hear they like Hostas. My kids are grossed out at the sight of them.
Enjoy your stay.

Bonfires are also good for slugs as they explode or atleast the ones who made the wood pile their home did. Frogs are also good slug eaters
