Ah thanks Tpb wish the eupatorium was a bit taller at the back but is a good plant have ordered some Achillea to go in front but only small plants so will have to see :-)

Yours is lovely. I have this; it's doing nothing! Too dry, I suspect. The 'Popsicle' ones (hideous name) are thriving and they're in the same sort of soil.

Thanks Anget, I've always had a couple of flowers but this is it's best so far, moved into more sun as recommended by Gnarly Gnome on here whether that did the trick and a seaweed feed who knows but I'm happy, this one is a larger one and I have two that split when I moved them so salvaged what I could, but they're sending up flowers too :-))

I cut off some faded flower stems this morning and found three of those little 'stripey' snails ... they are playing in the road now!

Shirley they are a pain especially when they decimate them 😐

It's a smashing colour Daylily. I've the rooperi Kniphofia which has never been bothered by snails, probably because there's more easier stuff to have a go at!

Thanks Janey that's good but yes they'll find something else, the last couple of years I've thought to give up but fingers crossed :-)

I shall look forward to seeing the Achillea there it should go nicely.

Thanks, they are pretty small Tpb we shall see :-))

Yes I am sure they might be small but will stand out.
