Beautiful, I wish I could grow dahlias but I can't keep the slugs off them, I've tried everything and they still demolish them over night 😣

@carlycarpenter .......I grew mine very successfully in pots for several years. Even in the garden most of them are ok but I do use slug pellets and an early morning slug patrol!!

@carlycarpenter @flof1952 Have you tried copper rings? The combination of copper rings & strulch has made a huge difference to my #slug & #snail infested, damp #Cumbrian garden. I even had a Bishop of Llandaff reappear after the winter, which is unheard of (I'd forgotten to dig it up).

Thanks, yep I've tried pots, copper, slug pellets and eggshells baked in garlic, I also remove slugs and snails by hand and put them to work in the compost but all to no avail lol
