Beautiful I'm hoping for flowers on the one you sent me Meanie its certainly a good size plant now, the slugs are having a field day with the iris at the moment , strangely only the ones at the bottom of the garden though.

The slugs are a pain Simbad. They love this one here.

I have been experimenting with putting crushed egg shell around some of my Iris seedlings. Saw one of those huge disgusting slugs with the orange skirt on an adjacent Fucshia. Chopped it in half with my secateurs!

I've found coffee grounds good but you need to drink a lot of coffee!

Yes, I' ve tried that, but instant coffee doesn't have grounds.
