I have them planted out and so far so good, the dlugs seem to go for something else. It is a wonderful colour isnt it?

This lovely purple one is in part shade under a pear tree, but Ive got R. Red Gurka, planted out in full sun and the slugs havent ever touched it. Also little pink R.scillifolia in the same area just seeds itself.

Thank you Kate, i think when it finishes ill put it in a bigger pot with woodsy soil and redig that pot into the same position.
